THIRTEEN of our Sixth Form students headed to Isle of Ely Primary School on October 16th to help Isle of Ely staff and children with the creation of their new eco-garden.

The community-spirited Sixth Formers were accompanied by Chris Youngs and Will Temple, who are members of the King’s Ely Garden and Grounds Team, Mrs Hall, our Sixth Form Supervisor, and Mrs Etchegoyen, our Director of Outreach.

The green-fingered team removed a huge area of weeds and prepared the soil ready for Isle of Ely pupils to start planting their new garden.

The event was organised under the umbrella of the Cambridgeshire Educational Partnership, of which King’s Ely and Isle of Ely Primary School are members.

The partnership has been formed to bring together school headteachers, education professionals and young people from across Cambridgeshire. Its aim is to work together for the mutual benefit of all pupils, in both independent and state schools, and to provide opportunities for students from schools within the partnership to gain access to a variety of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), MFL (Modern Foreign Languages), Arts, Sport and Enrichment activities.
