Newberries Primary in Radlett, Hertfordshire, is the latest school to add one of our fantastic timber play castles to their grounds.
They loved the design as it pairs imagination and social play provisions to ensure pupils of all ages and abilities are included and engaged, along with lots of detail to encourage them to create their own stories and adventures as they play.
An adventure trail leads to either end of the castle, with a wobbly bridge evoking a drawbridge and inviting pupils to start exploring. From here they can climb up to the first of two 1.2m-high decks, which is also accessible via the scramble net and ramp-and-rope to ensure upper body strength and fine motor skills are challenged.
Further along the castle ramparts there is a castle keep, complete with a Newberries Primary flag overhead, to spark the imagination, and simple steps ensure access for the less able or adventurous up onto the deck too.
All weather surfacing underfoot ensures they have use of the play area all year round, and links their existing play area to their tarmac play area too.
We’re always honoured to be picked to work with primary schools, and we hope the pupils of Newberries enjoy their new castle for a long time to come.
