He joined Glenda Jackson MP on a visit to the school to see their solar panels and find out how the pupils are being green.
Mr Miliband held and Q&A with the youngsters and said: "Your generation is really clued up about the environment and being green and what I try to do is make sure we develop other ways of making energy such as wind power, solar power and nuclear power.
