About Hammersmith Academy

Despite being an inner-city school lacking in green space, the students at Hammersmith Academy have worked incredibly hard to develop a productive and beautiful haven for fellow students to unwind in. Last year the team worked with the local council to plant up new gardens in the community to help support local biodiversity and they have also held a number of successful plant sales raising valuable funds for the garden.

Judges' comments
