"I came away hugely impressed by how the school is a fantastic example of what can be achieved by schools in the battle to save the planet, if only we set our minds to it.” We are so proud to see Fairgreen featured in the Times Educational Supplement (TES), a leading UK-based publication showcasing leading-edge education for over 100 years! Our thanks to Dr. Helen Wright, author of “The Globally Competent School: a manual” for visiting our campus in The Sustainable City.
