Radnor House Sevenoaks is raising the next generation of eco-heroes

Radnor House Sevenoaks, a day school for ages 2-18, is leading the way in environmental education by empowering students to make impactful changes. Already students have planted over 100 trees, cut energy consumption, built bug hotels and produced honey on site.

The school has established a student-led Eco-Committee of 15 pupils from across the Prep and Senior School. The committee meets weekly to discuss environmental initiatives and has conducted a full Environmental Review to assess the school’s green status and find areas for improvement. It then launched Radnor’s Eco Promise, with actions that every member of the school community can pledge to fulfil, from small, everyday activities like using recycling bins, to tasks such as tree-planting, beekeeping and reducing power wastage.

The committee has linked with the British Antarctic Survey to raise awareness of conservation activities and the value of scientific study beyond the school campus. Efforts have been acknowledged by Kent Green Schools Awards, which awarded students for the impact of the Eco Promise at the November 2023 ceremony. The team also received an Eco-Schools Green Flag with Distinction but, more importantly, it has made a real difference to the school’s environmental performance.

The committee members and their student advocates are well on their way to becoming the next generation of environmental leaders. To join the Prep School Open morning on 16th March, sign up at radnor-sevenoaks.org
