Camden & Islington Business Awards (CIBA) 2011
In 2011 The Gower School won the Environmental Responsibility Award. This recognised the school’s environmental awareness and sustainable activities and how these could inspire the rest of the local business community.
The Gower School is fully committed to creating a sustainable school. Activities include using washable cloth nappies in the nursery, recycling and reusing paper, card, glass, cans and composting all food waste. We implement a strong School Travel Plan and encourage children and staff to travel sustainably to school, highlighting this particularly during Walk to School Week.
We have designed an environmentally-friendly school with sensor-controlled lighting in communal areas, excellent insulation, modern and efficient boilers, double glazing wherever possible and natural light in every room. Our Primary School also has a green roof to encourage biodiversity.
