This year we have been working steadily towards the school's Outdoor Classroom and reflective area.
We have teamed up with Community Realm CIC, a non-for profit community land consultant, who are helping us with funding and more importantly, in taking elements of the children’s designs and making them a reality.
Our aim is to open the area up to other schools and community groups when completed, in addition to the myriad of opportunities that will be available to the children and staff at school.
Ground clearance has taken place and pupils have been marking out the areas for the pond liners with Simon and Jackie from Community Realm.

Following on from previous collaborations between the children at school and Ruth Wheeler from Sculpt It, we are delighted to announce an exciting project for the new academic year. Ruth and the children will be recycling wood from around the school grounds to design and create some sculptures that will encourage and support imaginative play.
The project has been made possible by the generous support of:
Cranleigh Decorative and Fine Arts Society (CDFAS)

Pupils have also been working on metal sculptures of flowers and insects with local sculptress, Alison Catchlove. These are to be installed around the Outdoor Classroom area.
