The purpose of these awards, which were presented by the famous farmer and TV star Adam Henson, is to reward school-based farm learning. The school have won in the School Farm Enterprise and Innovation Award 2017 Category. A judge for the awards, Sally Greenwood of the organisation Applied Inspiration, said, “Chipping Campden stood out, as the school have made official their enterprising activities by setting up a Community Interest Company (CIC), a unique move by the school farm to ensure profits from the school farm are used to benefit the furthering of land-based education of the school and the local community”.
John Sanderson, the headmaster spoke about how great it is to have a ‘pot to shop to plate’ experience and that the achievement of recognition has been a proud moment for the school. He went on to say that the school is performing a crucial role in providing a backbone for the rural economy and the benefit to the students from experience in the sector is invaluable and “should stand them in good stead for their futures”.
The Chipping Campden Business Forum have jointly created the ‘CIC’. The wonderful creations of this initiative, including apple juice, apple crisps, hand-made lamb burgers, sausages, free-range eggs and honey made from local flowers and will all be available to purchase online soon.
