The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Trees

Earlier this year, the School signed up to The Queen’s Green Canopy, a special tree-planting initiative to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This project was in conjunction with The Royal British Legion, with 105 saplings kindly donated to the School by The Woodland Trust.

The School received the saplings from the Trust earlier this month, and members of the School community, including pupils and staff from both Quainton Hall, our prep school, and John Lyon planted these at Sudbury playing fields this term.

A plaque has been laser cut internally by our DT department. This will accompany the site where the saplings have been planted to serve as a wonderful reminder to current and future generations of this historic and significant event.
