AN ENVIRONMENTAL campaign encouraging schools to plant and tend to fruit trees arrived at Sidcot School last week.

The ‘boarding orchard’ scheme was launched by the Boarding Schools Association (BSA) last year and national director of the BSA Robin Fletcher visited the Winscombe school last week.

Deputy head Matt Williams said: “It was a pleasure to show Robin around the school and in particular our boarding facilities.

He felt that the homely and nurturing environment of the boarding houses was a great indication of the school’s commitment to excellent pastoral care.

“We hope to see the tree thrive and bear fruit.”
