We can design and build:

  • Outdoor Classrooms
  • Ponds
  • Walkways and Paths
  • Clay Pizza Ovens
  • Shelter and Canopies
  • Compost Toilets
  • Temporary structures such as yurts and tepees

Grounds development work could also include:

  • Working with students and pupils, using a variety of methods to collect and interpret their views
  • Creating a development plan and an action plan for school grounds
  • Sourcing materials and building structures including shelters and living willow
  • Working to develop Forest School type areas for adventurous play on school grounds

We have been working with Sam in developing our Forest School right here at Riverside Primary School. We are extremely fortunate to have ground that has been developed into an exciting outdoor learning space. Sam and his team built our natural outdoor classroom, the pond and dipping platform and gazebo covering in the pond area and most recently has finished off the entrance to this area with a beautifully carved sign. Weatherall Wilderness is a tribute to John Weatherall who was governor here for many years and inspired us all to use our grounds by planting trees and using the space for outdoor learning. Sam’s brother built and carved the beautiful entrance to this area which is fantastic.
Thanks to the support and guidance from Sam and his team the whole school is now involved in Forest Schools which plays a very important part of school life for us.
