The Boarding Orchard was launched by the BSA in 2014. It aims to be largest orchard, by distance, in the UK and involves boarding schools joining the orchard by planting fruit trees in their grounds. The trees symbolise the ‘tree of knowledge’ and demonstrate each school’s commitment to growth and caring for the environment. Since the launch, schools across the UK - including Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland - have joined The Boarding Orchard, and trees have also been planted at boarding schools in Switzerland and the USA. We are delighted to embrace this initiative and welcomed Robin Fletcher, National Director of the BSA to All Hallows. Robin enjoyed visiting the Boarding House, having a look around the school, meeting some of our pupils and, of course, planting the tree (although it was a little chilly as you can probably tell from the photograph!).
