Outdoor Classroom

2 years ago we had a dream … to build an environmental lodge to help us bridge the gap between indoor and outdoor learning.
A base from which our pupils can get involved in outdoor learning and play through gardening, creating bug hotels and working to raise awareness of being environmentally friendly.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of our pupils and their families, the local community and generous company donations – this has now become a reality



Thank you to our parents and community for the incredible donations received to enable us to reach our target for the Environment Lodge.  We will now make contact with the installation company to organise a date for next term (Autumn 2021).  I have been overwhelmed by how quickly our school and community have given their support to our Environment Lodge project.  I never imagined we would reach our target so quickly.

The donations received along with Greenham Trust matched funding have secured funding for the lodge.  We will continue fundraising for the environment area itself, to provide resources for the children to use as part of their class sessions.  The Good Exchange site has now stopped accepting donations as we have reached our target.  We would however ask for support through School Gateway to assist with the resources for the project.

Over the half term holidays a group of parents have organised a ‘Family Walk to Paris’ (virtual) to help raise funds for the environment area.  We will send out information on this later this week.

Thank you for all your help so far with so many generous donations.


What’s Next?

We will start creating an environmental science area around the lodge, building bug hotels and making shelters among many other exciting projects.
