A WELLING school has won a prestigious award for its energy conservation efforts.

Competing against more than 500 nominations, the Harris Academy Falconwood, on The Green, won a bronze Green Apple Environmental Award.

The redevelopment of the former Westwood College site saw run-down buildings replaced with sustainable alternatives.

Solar panels and ground source heating have generated energy savings while the building is constructed at an angle providing the best levels of natural light.

Bexley Council’s cabinet member for education, Councillor John Fuller, accepted the award at the House of Commons on November 12. He said: “It’s a great credit to the academy and its partners to have the project recognised.”

The Green Apple Awards recognise Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities.
