An academy has installed 1,132 solar panels in the latest round of student-led eco work.

Worle Community School Academy (WCSA) has installed solar panels across the school, in Redwing Drive, to produce free electricity and to help the environment.

The school’s student-led Climate Justice Revolution (CJR) has been campaigning successfully for changes for the past two years.

The CJR recently finished semi-finalists in the international Global Social Leaders competition involving more than 600 teams from 105 countries.

CJR leader and school head boy, Jack Clark, said: “We are thrilled to see the solar panels right across the school producing environmentally friendly energy. 

“Our students have successfully campaigned to produce eco-powered changes across a range of areas and we are delighted to see such positive progress.“

Jack also formed his own environmental magazine, The Green Gazette.
