We believe that school grounds should be inspiring places in which to learn, develop and play and that the external environment within a school is a vital element of children’s physical, social and emotional development.

Our Approach

• Include non prescriptive play elements, such as changes in level, pattern and texture, to encourage creative play and exploration.
• Work with a sites history and context
• Use inventive consultation and brief development to establish project aspirations
• Make the best use of the available budget and resources
• Create inclusive proposals to suit a range of abilities
• leave space for staff and children to make their own mark
• Carefully work through with the school proposals that balance risk and adventure
