New School Shelter

As we move into spring our pupils are now starting to get out into the garden again so we are very pleased to have our new garden shelter completed.

The new school shelter

The shelter was designed and built by Dave Crosbie from Tree-ditions Woodland Crafts School with a lot of help from our pupils.  The shelter was only possible thanks to a very generous grant from The Percy Bilton Charity.

Dave selected and prepared the key structural components off-site

 

His brief was to create a very natural look and feel that would fit well with our garden

The shelter is primarily for our pupils to use at break times but we also plan to incorporate the shelter into our learning wherever we can.
