Environmental Sustainability

Our sustainability goals

As custodians of this remarkable planet, Pembroke House, is beginning to take significant steps in building upon our sustainability goals. We have a long history of ‘green’ principles, such as the use of solar in heating our pool, creating our own water filtration system and every new pupil is invited to plant a sapling in their first term. Now that the earth is at a tipping point, it has never been more crucial to take more action and the creation of our Sustainability Sub Committee in 2022 is dedicated to driving our environmental efforts further.

With considerable farming and conservation experience within our committee, we are embarking on a journey with a focus on the food served to our children and its provenance. We are also looking at ways to increase the biodiversity of the school campus by re-wilding areas, introducing bee hives, creating our own farm to aspire to a net zero food policy and planting our ‘Queen’s Canopy’ of trees to extend our forestry in memory of Queen Elizabeth II. We have also upped our recycling efforts and, of course, continue to inspire our children to make sound environmental decisions that will become a way of life.

“The impact of the pupils’ involvement permeates the life of the school. Pupils are always aware of their responsibilities to the wider world, not least those that may have an environmental element”.
