School grounds design and build

UK Wide

Grounds for Learning has delivered new playground and learning spaces to most local authorities in Scotland, and our experience of delivering flexible, cost effective and sustainable spaces for free play and learning is second to none.

Our work over the past three years on the Scottish Natural Play Project, which in turn was inspired by our studies of school grounds in Berlin, has allowed us to author the Good School Playground Guide.

Our method of working centres on supporting people - the children, staff and parents - to ensure that the changes we make to spaces are sustainable and embraced. This is a key difference between ourselves and many play equipment providers. 

Our service includes:

  • Consultation in school
  • Concept design and detailed design
  • Training for staff, pupils and managers
  • Engagement with local authorities
  • Support in providing risk assessments, maintenence plans and management plans
  • Management of the build process, through contractors on site.
  • Being on-site initially to suppport staff and pupils.
We do not hide design charges in our fee's for builds, and feel that our playgrounds can offer incredible value for money.
