A new timber trail and turf pitch have been installed

Break times at Bickley Park School have seen a change for students, with two new additions to the school play ground.

A timber trail and astro turf pitch were installed at the boys’ prep school over the summer.

The trail includes climbing walls, a rope swing, cargo nets and balance bars.

Head teacher Patrick Wenham said: ““It’s been great to see the pupils enjoying the astro turf pitch and outdoor timber trail – both have been a real hit. The astro turf is a completely new addition for the boys, who previously played hockey on a playground.

“The timber trail is always busy at break times, allowing pupils to burn off excess energy so they are then focussed for classes. And the outdoor classroom provides a wonderful, original environment for inspiring classes themed around the outdoors.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
