At Setter Play, we take a great deal of pride in the quality service that we continuously deliver to our clients. Below are a selection of comments and testimonials from our many delighted customers.

The planning and installation of a large active play structure was always going to be a big step forward for Tudor Primary. A number of companies were invited to tender and, from the outset, the professional and bespoke approach from Setter Play was highly impressive. Aleks and the team were always on hand to listen and respond with additional refinements to ensure children of all ages in our school got what they really deserved – a truly fantastic resource that will be a selling point for the school for many years to come. Thank you Setter Play!

Tudor Primary School

“Last year, Setter Play provided us with an entirely new play area following a devastating fire that left our site needing a complete re-installation including groundworks, re-levelling the area, surfacing, wooden gazebo, musical instruments, activity trails and a fantastic Pirate Ship climbing frame.  From start to finish, Setters were completely respectful of our school environment, and the company worked seamlessly alongside our Project Management Company involved to ensure the installation went as smoothly and quickly as possible within the confines of an area cordoned off on our playground.  We found all the staff involved to be both efficient and personable and, to date, have not had any problems with any of the work or equipment, and would be pleased to recommend Setter Play to you.”

Dear Aleks

I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know how impressed we were with the Setter “experience”.  From initial visits, installation and follow up, all went extremely smoothly and we are very pleased with the outcome.

Kind regards

“The Setter Play team have designed and installed a fantastic community playground for Warborough Parish Council (installation: Summer 2019). We considered tenders from many companies  – Setter stood out as having the most wide ranging catalogue, the most adventurous equipment whilst also producing a very very natural-looking playground, which was important to our community.


Perhaps most importantly their sales and design team, lead by Aleks, was incredibly helpful and genuinely thought about our requirements and created some wonderful designs and several bespoke units for us, all with competitive pricing. They were an excellent partner in what was a 2-year project and we would not hesitate to recommend them; the village green has never been so busy and the equipment has a big thumbs up from the local children.”

This project has been in the pipeline for several years and the involvement of Setter has, from the initial “what’s possible” stage through to our current installation stage the personal service we have received has been excellent.  In developing our ideas of what we would like your advice and suggestions – and responses to our questions and queries of what is possible – has really helped us to develop our own ideas.  You have responded to all our queries around the more specialist nature and challenges of SEN provision, and this continues now as we ‘tweak’ things that we are seeing in place/in scale for the first time.


Our funding was secured very close to the summer holidays and going from “we’d love to be able to…..” to finalised plans and breaking ground in around 6/8 weeks has meant that we will get a whole extra year of use and enjoyment from the play spaces.  Due to these timescales, work continues in autumn term and again, you have helped us address all the additional challenges that this brings – ensuring your contractors are up to speed and providing a very good level of oversight and management of the project.


I would be happy to be contacted by any other school if they have further questions or queries.”

“I have always found the company to be very helpful in advising us of the options which may suit our needs. They are always open to personalising things to meet the school’s requirements. One such installation was our lovely Highbury House, which was specially designed for our school, to create a quiet area at playtimes. This has been much enjoyed by the children.”

“I will also try to put down a few words although I am not sure how I can do the company and service justice! 

 I could not recommend Setters highly enough. They have been a fantastic company to work with on an extremely large and complex long term project that we have recently completed. The advice that they have provided has been invaluable. They offered a very personal, friendly service that ensured that our project was completed efficiently and most importantly exactly how we wanted it. We have had an old disused swimming pool converted into a fantastic Multi use games area, a disused awkward hilly areas converted into an usable all weather play space. This included the installation of an outdoor classroom and a large climbing frame. Finally, this summer saw the completion of a newly installed playground and netball court into a sloping meadow. The work required careful planning and extensive excavation. Setter managed the project from start to finish and we and most importantly, the children, could not be happier with the results of the work.”

‘Setter Play are an excellent company. They are incredibly professional and listen very well. Aleks is very aware of the time pressures headteachers are under and will talk to you about your requirements but certainly not waste time. Aleks was precise in terms of ensuring that the works met our expectations and standards. They are efficient and deliver what they say they will deliver. Our children have really benefited from the equipment they have put in at our school and the bespoke nature of the equipment means that it matches our requirements and has contributed directly to raising standards (e.g. lots of equipment to build upper body strength, grip and grasp which has positively impacted on early writing skills). I can highly recommend them for undertaking works at your school. If you would like to phone for more details please do or you would be very welcome to come and look at the work they have done at our school.’

Tannery Drift School

What an amazing job – the children are over the moon and it has transformed their playtimes and learning environment. I could not recommend these guys highly enough.

Ashwell Primary School

I have been through your feedback form and we have given 10 (out of 10) for every question.  Extremely pleased with product especially coming back to fix the slight problem (a fault with a component from one of our suppliers!) before the school started. The children are loving it!

Cherry Tree Primary School

From a school point of view we have been very happy with the Jellywood, children of all ages have been playing on it and it provides challenge and open ended opportunities. It has with stood the wear and tear of a 100 plus children playing on it and the safety surface is fantastic.

Headington Quarry Foundation Stage School

We were very impressed with Setter Play throughout. The only hurdles we faced were due to weather constraints which were dealt with well. We have recommended Setter to other people already and would definitely use again
