Bishop Vaughan Catholic School pupils are celebrating being awarded the highest Eco-award – Platinum Status. This means that we have been part of the Eco-school initiative for over 8 years and the Platinum Award is a milestone achievement that shows sustainable development and global citizenship is well embedded into daily school life.
