School grounds design or redesign has been a focal area that our highly experienced team have worked in over the years. We transform schools across London and the South East of England. By working together with school governors, PTA boards, consultants and even with input from the children themselves we design, construct and enhance school grounds and creative play areas for children of all ages.
The imagination is the only limit! School ground design can include adventure playgrounds, interactive outdoor classrooms, wildlife and pollinator friendly spaces or shaping inspiring and forest school sites.
‘97% of teachers say outdoor play is critical for children to reach their potential in school.’
We have a wide range of experience of working with school communities to deliver unique gardens and natural playgrounds on time and on budget. We can transform your unused playground areas and hidden corners of school grounds into safe and vibrant places so young people can play creatively, learn and develop cognitively.
As natural play specialists we design aid natural learning and discovery in the great outdoors. From mud kitchens to water play and sensory elements to seating areas and balance structures to help take learning outside. We know that after spending time in nature, children report that they have gain educational benefits, are calmer and more willing to try new things.
School grounds can also be shaped to encourage healthy eating and improved well being by developing tarmac and concrete into raised vegetable and sensory herb beds and planters, mini orchards and accessible pathways for all students.
We can phase the school grounds design and construction to suit all budget requirements and would be delighted to arrange a visit to other school ground transformations if you would like to see our work first hand.
