We are committed to supporting the Government's strategy for sustainability and climate change in eduction to reduce our environmental footprint and the drive achieve net zero.

The vision is that The United Kingdom is the world-leading education sector in sustainability and climate change by 2030

And this will be achieved through the following strategic aims:

  1. Excellence in education and skills for a changing world: preparing all young people for a world impacted by climate change through learning and practical experience.
  2. Net zero: reducing direct and indirect emissions from education and care buildings, driving innovation to meet legislative targets and providing opportunities for children and young people to engage practically in the transition to net zero.
  3. Resilience to climate change: adapting our education and care buildings and system to prepare for the effects of climate change.
  4. A better environment for future generations: enhancing biodiversity, improving air quality and increasing access to, and connection with, nature in and around education and care settings.

At Hampton High, we are working towards this through the following initial projects.  These will adapt and develop as we tackle them:-

Our 2022/23 completed projects:

  • Remove single use plastic bottles and cans from sale
  • Tree planting scheme.  Replanting in front of school and development of the well-being garden

Olio at Hampton High

We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Olio to fight food waste!

Hampton High has started working with Olio to make sure no food goes to waste at our school canteens.

How does it work?

It’s simple: Olio volunteers collect whatever food doesn’t get eaten from our canteens. They then share any spare food with members of the local community - quickly and safely – via Olio’s app.

Our spare food ends up feeding people in the local community, rather than going to waste. Plus, sharing food through Olio means we’re helping care for the climate, too.

How can you get involved?

As well as offering schools like ours a way to redistribute uneaten food, Olio is also a sharing app for local communities, on a mission to fight waste.  It makes it easy to pass on the things you no longer need — from food to furniture, and clothes to books — to people who live nearby.

You can also use Olio to see what food you could collect for free in the local area.

Download Olio on Google Play or the App Store and get started today.
