Students from Oaklands College built a wildlife and environment garden at a school in Brookmans Park, based on a design by two of its pupils.
The students, from the college’s landscape and construction department, built the garden for Chancellor’s School as the prize for winning at the WHT Schools Awards last year.
Chancellor’s pupils Alex Chadwell, 13, and his sister Katherine, 16, from Barnet, designed the garden. They said: “It’s almost exactly as we planned it.”
Head of science at Chancellor’s School Liza Merrett said: “This is brilliant and students across the school will now have hands-on learning experiences in ecology, life-cycles and pond dipping.
“We will also be setting up an after- school gardening club.”

Tee Robertson, head of landscape construction at Oaklands, said: “This has been an amazing work experience opportunity for our students with over 40 taking part during the week long project.
“They have really enjoyed installing the pond and bog area as this is something they wouldn’t have been able to do if it wasn’t for this project.”
