Become a member
In order to become a member of our not-for-profit association, schools have to adopt a series of environmental policies and practices which we have summarised as the 12 Commitments.

The Application Process
Register for a free account
Register your interest in becoming a Green Standard School by clicking on the Register button and sending us a simple form.
Complete our application and self-assessment forms
Fill in our online application form, which has two sections.
The first section provides us with a little more information about your school; the second will assess your current environmental practices.
This second section consists of 48 Yes/No questions. If you answer Yes, you will then be asked to provide something to help us verify your statement. This something could be a document, a comment a link, whatever you think is most appropriate.
Section two will automatically generate a score, with a maximum of 200 points available. To qualify as a Green Standard School you will need to obtain a minimum of 130 points.
Submit your completed application form and someone from our team will check through it.
If you qualify for accreditation, we will ask you to sign a membership agreement and pay the corresponding fee. Once we have received the agreement and fee, you will receive various items from us including:
- A certificate showing your accreditation
- Copies of our logo to use on your website, social media and so on
- A report on your application form, suggesting areas you may like to work on
- A log-in to our members site where you will find various resources including a range of teaching materials
Please note: you will need to revise the application form annually, but each time should be a lot easier and faster.
