This was a huge project which transformed a large area of barren land in the middle of the school into a beautiful place for students and staff to enjoy. This was achieved by covering the area with artificial turf, building decking and seating around three beautiful silver birch trees, planting up the flower beds with shrubs and building a large raised bed in the centre of the site. In addition, a student has built some seating in collaboration with Jarvis Contracting and students have painted murals and made sculptures.
The Outdoor Gym
This was the first Outdoor Gym to be installed in a Hertfordshire school, and only the third to be installed in the county.
We’re delighted to have been able to fund the gym. The students love it and it should make an appreciable difference to general health and fitness levels.
Other projects we have funded
- essential equipment for the new science lab
- a range of low cost musical instruments to make trying an instrument an option for all students
- an outdoor table tennis table, bats and balls expanding the range of outdoor activities available for students in break times
- improved acoustics in the Sports Hall, enabling it to be used more widely as a venue
- fencing for the new Eco garden
