They spent five months organising a water saving and education campaign, fund raising and improving the accessibility of the VIP latrine, a toilet installed globally by WaterAid.
Head teacher Martin Atkinson said: "I am really delighted with the success of our students seeing the fruition of all their hard work and also very grateful for the excellent work of Dr Jones [the organising teacher] in putting the team together. The challenge provided an excellent opportunity to enrich their educational experience."
Events at the school included assemblies, life skills lessons, an aqua fair and making a model of a toilet they designed to save water use.
