Being shortlisted for The Cornish Guardian’s British Gas Sustainable Energy Makeover, worth an amazing £135,000, was exciting enough, but when the school heard that it had won there were shrieks of delight and amazement! The school had worked extremely hard to bring the whole community on board to vote in the competition and its efforts clearly paid off. The school would like to thank all students, parents, governors, staff and community members who supported its appeal.

On receiving the news, Isobel Bryce, headteacher, said, ‘It just goes to show what can be achieved when the whole community pulls together. £135,000 is a large amount of money and will make a real difference to improving facilities at our school. We are faced daily with the challenge of reducing energy costs in a 1960s building. The more money we save on energy, the more there will be available to support students’ learning. We are looking forward to meeting with representatives from British Gas in the near future to discuss plans. Thanks are expressed to ‘The Cornish Guardian’ for helping us achieve this excellent grant.”
