Walter Halls School

Walter Halls School

Groundwork Greater Nottingham worked with Walter Halls Primary School to turn part of their school grounds into an outdoor classroom. This area was designed using timber sleepers and in-situ cast concrete. New solar powered lights were installed and improvements were made to the existing pathways and planting scheme.

It has created an exciting and inspiring outdoor space with amphitheatre seating, and has had a positive effect on how the children participate and learn during lessons.

Along with the creation of the outdoor classroom, a new entrance sign was installed which the school children helped to design.
