The Swallow Hill Community College encouragingly includes a number of sustainable features:
- timber from sustainable sources;
- recycled stone;
- reactive lighting that dims as natural light increases;
- water saving devices;
- outdoor habitat areas with wild and natural plants.
It was great to walk around the new building with John Battle MP, a passionate advocate for this wonderful project, and to see the progress we are making with the brilliant building. We were accompanied by young people from West Leeds and Wortley High Schools who were very obviously impressed with their new school and looking forward to starting there in September.
