Brushwood Junior School

Chesham - Buckinghamshire

Built: October 4, 2020

“We love all our new play areas. The children cannot wait to use them, and they are providing new opportunities and challenges for all our children. EPE are an outstanding partner to work with, I would strongly recommend them for anyone looking for new play equipment and ideas. We have worked with EPE several times before. They have always done a fantastic job, offering value for money with innovative solutions to meet our needs. The EPE design team and their contractors who come on site are a pleasure to deal with, and the end results are fantastic.”

What were the reasons for developing your outdoor space?

“Our old climbing wall was tired and out of date and we needed more challenge for our older, and taller pupils.”

How we transformed the play area to provide outdoor learning opportunities for the children:

Once we had taken out the old climbing wall, we had an existing wet pour base which was ready to be used again and then overlaid with rubber mulch to create an exciting new area. The main objective from meeting with the school was that the pupils wated some really high and challenging units to keep them interested. We used a combination of our KS2 Trim Trail which included a 2.4m High Chin UP Bars, a High Boulder Climber A-Frame and a High Twist Net. The new units were arranged in a stand-alone formation so they could be used as individual stations and combined with a PE circuit using the exiting gym equipment. 

How the children will benefit from the new play area:

The children at Brushwood Junior School now have an area to be brave and take risks with their abilities. The challenges include climbing, balancing, and traversing and at the height of the new equipment their sense of risk and accomplishment will definitely be improved. All the actions on the new units are designed to improve their upper and lower body strength and coordination.
