Green Spaces & Sustainability
Long Road Sixth Form College is perfectly placed, a short walk to the historical city centre of Cambridge and alongside the cutting-edge research of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. As you explore our green and leafy campus, and you’ll soon feel a world away from city life, breathe in the fresh country air and stroll along our woodland walk. With several thousand trees on campus, including a number of rare species such as an Indian bean tree and a giant redwood, we are very wildlife-friendly.
At Long Road we are committed to sustainability and playing our part in addressing the climate crisis. As well encouraging environmentally friendly activities, such as recycling, we embed environmental education across the curriculum. If you’re interested in making our community a greener place you can get involved in the Sustainability Committee and complete the nationally recognised Carbon Literacy programme, gaining certification and qualifying as trainers in your own right.
