Our  Goal

At Brentwood Secondary, we strive to inspire our whole school community to connect with the environment and to make a positive contribution to sustainability at school, home, and beyond.  

Brentwood Secondary aims to reduce our ecological footprint by adopting sustainable practices in our everyday operations. We will achieve this by continuing to integrate sustainability into all areas of the curriculum and instilling a sense of ownership of and pride in improving the environment. We will lead the community by demonstrating exemplary practices in waste management, water and energy usage, and continue to develop the school grounds to improve biodiversity. 

The Brentwood Green Team is committed to upholding our college values by being respectful and responsible for protecting the environment.
