A LEADING eco school in Hatfield has triumphed at the 2009 East of England Teaching Awards.

At the ceremony, held in Norwich this afternoon (Thursday), Howe Dell won the sustainable schools award.

Since moving to its new environmentally-friendly site at The Runway in 2007, Howe Dell has become one of the country's leading eco schools, regularly attracting national headlines.

Only last month, the school was highly commended for its sustainability at the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors Awards, considered the Oscars of the property industry.

It is also the second successive year that the school has been honoured.

Last year, head Debra Massey took the award for Headteacher of the Year.
