The trail offers climbing-frames and ramps, swinging tyres, balancing beams and other obstacles. The idea is to get around it without touching the ground. Next time you visit the school, why not try to beat the record of 80 seconds?!
Another facility that has recently been improved through PTA funding. The school is grateful to the Foyle Trust who donated computer systems and lots of imaginative material to encourage reading.
One section is laid out as a conventional library whilst a separate area has been converted into a computer suite.
The library has a nautical theme with fresh coloured panels, new sofas and curtains.
Rose Oak Amphitheatre
Built in 2003, this unique 60-seat structure is made entirely from oak.
Each child in the school produced a ceramic figure according to the theme “Tales and Fables from Around the World”. These are actually housed within the frame of the structure.
This initiative was partially funded by government grants but we were also fortunate to receive generous support from the Rotary Club and Laing Homes. In addition, the PTA raised significant sums from numerous events.
Also completed in 2003 and once again designed with input from the children. There was also a donation from Sir Walter St John's Educational Charity; building and design was by Arts Desire.
We are well equipped to teach ICT skills and to use those skills in an exciting and creative way across the curriculum. As well as two computer suites we have a set of MacBooks, class sets of Netbooks and PDAs as well as webcams for animation, video cameras and digital cameras. We work closely with external consultants and the Wandsworth CLC to ensure we are taking advantage of as much current technology as possible and are now working on a multimedia project involving MacBooks, iPads and Android phones.
All classes are equipped with interactive whiteboards and both halls have projection facilities.
