Green Fingered Sixth Formers


Our Sixth Formers have been getting back to nature and developing their green fingered talents as part of a collaborative gardening project to support their physical and mental wellbeing.

The Making Roots initiative has seen students from the school’s Sixth Form partner with staff from Hendon based charity Back on the Map as well as the Durham Wildlife Trust.

Based in Barley Mow Park the students have been allocated raised beds by Back of the Map to cultivate flowers and vegetables alongside volunteers also using the community garden to benefit their wellbeing.

You can find out more about this collaborative project in a very recent article from The Sunderland Echo.
