The 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) was held in Glasgow from 31 October - 13 November 2021. TLA students took part in the Great Big lesson for Climate and Nature on 5 November 2021. This live lecture from COP 26 linked our science curriculum to Climate change, Biodiversity and Sustainability. To give students further outdoor learning opportunities, the Science Faculty, working with the Site Management Team started The Langley Academy Regeneration Garden. Regeneration is vital for the reestablishment of natural habitats in each area. Our garden will regenerate, undisturbed, allowing new seedlings and shoots to establish, in addition to selected trees planted at launch. Our Chair of Trust, Dr Oona Stannard officiated the launch, with each year eight science class planting a tree.

We are experiencing climate change driven loss of human life, plants, and animals, linked to a global temperature increase of 0.8C in the last 300 years. In a closing speech, Keyan P (pictured), Year 8, implored everybody to prevent adverse effects of climate change by engaging in simple activities such as planting and taking care of trees.
