Ilkley’s Moorfield School has become the first in the Wharfe valley to be awarded the green flag for its eco-friendly efforts for the third time.
This accolade for the school, in Ben Rhydding Road, highlights its commitment to being an eco-friendly place.
The school said that the eco theme is embedded across its curriculum and in their outstanding ongoing projects.
The inspector toured the premises and highlighted the newly-improved grounds, kitchen garden, habitat hotspots, recycling centre and a wonderful model of an eco house.
Eco-Schools are run internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education.
As an Eco-School, Moorfield is aiming to educate their pupils with information that will help them make sustainable decisions in the future.
