Planting trees for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Green fingered students in Year 7 and 8 have been busy planting a variety of different trees in the woodland surrounding Crompton House, as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee on Sunday 6th February.

The QGC is a unique tree planting initiative which invites people from across the United Kingdom to play their part to enhance our environment by planting trees during the official planting season between October to March.

Mr Douglas, part of the staff team that organised the tree planting – along with Mrs Gledhill Mr Robinson and Mrs Owen, said:

“Students were keen to get involved and enjoyed getting muddy! They planted a mix of deciduous species including dog roses, dogwoods hazel, hawthorn and crab apple trees. We are pleased that Crompton House has become a part of the Queen’s Green Canopy; both to honour Her Majesty’s legacy and improve the school environment for future generations”.
