A SCHOOL says it has gone ethical and sustainable making snoods and headbands for pupils after teaming up with a social enterprise working to help women access work.

The Village Prep School in Parkhill Road, Belsize Park, has joined up with Knit up – which helps women who have generally faced hurdles to start their own fashion businesses by providing skills and employment.

The enterprise was set up by one of the school’s parents and now pupils are enjoying the benefit of warm, woollen accessories.

Morven MacDonald, the school’s head, said “Social responsibility is part of our ethos and it has been wonderful for our girls to see this brought to life through Knit up. We look forward to rolling out sustainable snoods and headbands to the whole school in September.”
