Sustainable Living

At Leigh, we are looking to create a sustainable future for our school and our community. We have a number of projects ongoing

    electricity for us ever since. If you want to find out more about how you could use renewable energy in your home then check outwww.energysavingtrust.org.uk/

    Thanks to the PTA we have a fantastic outdoor learning area on our school field - perfect for studying conservation and our local environment. If local clubs or groups are interested
