Ready to take your carbon cutting to the next level? After two amazing years, we're recruiting a new group of schools to join our Solar Schools project.
Led by a team of local volunteers, schools work with the whole community to raise the cash for their very own solar roof. Each school can take donations and tell their story through their own page on solarschools.org.uk.
This isn't just for teachers: some of the best Solar Schools teams are led by parents, governors or support staff. You don't have to be a pro fundraiser or a solar expert either: if you're connected to a school and can spare some time to make this work, we want to hear from you!

In New Mills, Derbyshire, there's a group of students who have jumped into their Solar Schools project with both feet. They may not be experienced fundraisers, but their enthusiasm for solar has helped them rack up a series of successes that would impress the pros!
Whether it is growing vegetables in the school grounds, switching off lights or visiting a local arboretum, the pupils at Little Kingshill have always been super keen on making their school a greener place to be.
So when they became a Solar School it could only get better!
