Case Study

School Grounds

Schools and nurseries want to make the most out their external areas but sometimes need advice and guidance on how to do it. They are looking for inspiring playgrounds to encourage imagination and that incorporate play, natural elements, learning, health & fitness and food growing.

With a team of experts in playground design, natural play and outdoor learning workshops, we’re able to help you create amazing outdoor spaces.

We deliver consultation activities to help spark ideas and make the most of your school environment, draw up designs and sketches that bring ideas to life and carry out construction work on site to install play equipment, daily mile tracks, food growing areas, learning zones and the creation of new habitats.

We can also offer help and support with completing funding applications in conjunction with your school or we can apply on your behalf. There are a variety of funding sources available, including ‘Awards for All’ which schools use quite frequently and is a relatively straight forward funding application and process. This particular stream offers grants of up to £10,000.
