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.
There are so many companies that provide outdoor equipment for schools I had previously found it difficult to know where to go. However, from the first engagement to the completion of the work I found Setter play to be professional and the products of a very high quality. I am often frustrated that companies are attentive throughout the bidding process, but then are difficult to engage during the project. This is not the case with Setter play. Both times I have used them, I have had regular contact with the MD or sales manager throughout and have been pleased to see them regularly visiting the site. I cannot fault the quality of the product or installation. The two projects I have used them for are a large canopy and an adventure trail. Both times they have listened carefully to our requirements and have come up with suggestions that improve our spaces and maximise our budget. We are now consulting with them with reference to the development of our early years outdoor area.Appleton Primary School
I am very happy to give a positive reference.
We have always found Setters to be professional and their work / products have been a good quality. They have always worked with us, producing an environment to our specification. The work carried out has always been fast, true to cost and reasonably priced.
At Oughton, we have used Setters many times over the years and have always been pleased. Feel free to contact me for more information.Oughton Primary & Nursery School
“Working with Setter Play, to produce their first edition of ‘Twig Hill’, was the best decision we have made for our outdoor provision in a long time. The children absolutely love climbing and swinging, and never a day goes by without it being in full use. Finding the money for the rubber mulch flooring was key to getting all year round use but we were so glad we did. I have been amazed at the enduring pull that Twig Hill has for the children and the inventive ways in which they use it. We couldn’t be happier with our climbing apparatus and with Setter for their guidance and support.”St Faith's School
“We have been highly impressed with Setter Plays work and customer service. Setter installed our 1st play equipment 15 years ago and we have since required their services for other projects in our school. Aleks and the installers have been professional throughout the whole process. We will use them again for our next project in the future.”Oughton Primary School
“I would like to recommend Setter Play as an excellent company in which to do business with. We have collaborated with them for three school projects and we have been impressed with not only the quality of the product, but the level of engagement throughout. Jonathan has worked well with the site manager to ensure that the product fulfils our needs and communication has always been a strength of this company. If there have been any small changes that have needed to be addressed, then Jonathan has responded quickly and offered support and excellent after-care.
We always ensured we had competitive quotes, but we always chose Setter because of the quality of the product and the reputation of the company.
I hope this reassures you in your decision-making.”St. Andrew's Primary School
We have worked with Setter for a number of years on several projects across the school including the development of our outdoor play area for EYFS, large pirate ship for our main playground and our latest key stage 2 project to create our outdoor classroom. From project designing, installation through to final inspection Setter were professional and extremely accommodating to our requests. On all occasions they listened carefully to our brief and were able to help us create our vision within the budget we had, making tweaks and changes until we were completely happy with the design. I would highly recommend Aleks and his team and we would certainly use them again in the future.Balliol Lower School
“From design to completion, we were very impressed with Setter Play’s work. Their customer service was exemplary and the quality of workmanship in the final outdoor space is excellent. The children love their new outside play space”Farthinghoe Primary School
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.”Hook Norton Primary School
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.

“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.”Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee SEN School
