Sustainable Education

Sustainable development is a way of thinking about how we organise our lives and work – including our education system – so that we don’t destroy our most precious resource, the planet. 

Sustainable development means inspiring people in all parts of the world to find solutions that improve their quality of life without storing up problems for the future, or impacting unfairly on other people’s lives. It must be much more than recycling bottles or giving money to charity. It is about thinking and working in a profoundly different way.

The Beacon Sustainable Education Programme endeavours to raise awareness of sustainability amongst the boys, parents, staff and the local community.

Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life.  The Beacon currently holds the Silver Eco-Schools Award.
