Nailsea School has been given a grant to enable it to become more environmentally friendly.
The Megawatt Community Energy Fund awarded the school £4,000 to further its work in lowering its carbon footprint.
Staff have used the money to replace 120 fluorescent light fittings with an LED panel - which uses less power and reduces bills.
The school's development officer, Fiona Davies, said: "Making these changes within the school is an important way to make a difference to the environment whilst highlighting the growing importance of tackling climate change.
"We have a number of students who have formed their own Climate Action Group, and it is encouraging to see the positive steps they are taking for the planet's future."
