BSA Tree Planting

29 Nov 2022

Our Head of Boarding and our Deputy Head were joined by the Boarding Schools Association repre-sentative Jane Graham and some of our international boarding community to plant a crab apple tree on our school grounds to join the ‘Boarding Orchard’.
The Boarding Orchard was launched by the BSA in 2014. It aims to be the ‘largest’ orchard by geography in the world and encourages schools to involve their pupils in planting trees to support the environment. Since launch, schools across the UK – including Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland – have joined the Boarding Orchard, and trees have also been planted at boarding schools across the world.
The crab apple was chosen as a symbol of knowledge.
