The Garden

A containerised roof terrace with views over the City of London this site is a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of school life. The school’s new Gardening Club look after food production - growing and harvesting during the season and cooking with produce or offering it to friends and family. The composting system encourages a rich soil ecology and the terrace is a haven for birds. Students can also enjoy the garden for a range of non-gardening activities including reading, science and art.
