Special Places, Special People was published. This was a collaborative piece of research by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and LTL. Researcher Wendy Titman looked at the impact of the design and management of school grounds on primary-aged children which has been key to our approach to our work ever since.

The start of the ‘Supergrounds’ programme with funding from the Royal Bank Scotland (RBS), which was a school grounds development programme for schools across the UK for six years.

We managed the development of the Growing Schools Garden at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. Designed by Chris Beardshaw the garden was inspired by projects in more than 30 schools and won both a gold medal and the Tudor Rose for best in show.

We received funding from the BIG Lottery to help us create orchards in 200 schools across Great Britain.

LTL ran an international school grounds conference for those working on the ground with schools around the world. This was the first conference by what has now become the International School Grounds Alliance, of which LTL is a founding member.

We published ‘Learn and Play Out’ – a toolkit to help primary schools get everyone involved in developing their school grounds.

Sir David Attenborough helped us speak out about the threats to school grounds by featuring in a video highlighting the importance of children’s daily contact with nature.
