Thomas Becket Catholic School in Northampton contracted Cambridge Glasshouse Company to design and build the turn-key glasshouse comprising Mediterranean and Tropical sections.
Steve Backshall opened the new facility on 20 July, saying he was excited to see an initiative bringing horticulture to schools.
Thomas Becket School vice principal Kerrie Henton added: "(We) are very passionate about sustainability and the environment so we believe this resource will educate students giving them the opportunity to view first hand plants such as coffee, bananas, grapes and olives to name a few. This will further assist students in making the link between growers, supermarkets and the environment."
Cambridge Glasshouse undertook the contract with the majority of onsite works taking place during the school Easter holiday period.
Victor Lambert of Cambridge Glasshouse commented what a pleasure it had been a pleasure working with staff to bring the concept to fruition.
