St Patrick’s RC Primary School, Preston – Outdoor Classroom

PSA were employed by the Governors of St Patrick’s to provide the full design service as the lead consultant for a new outdoor classroom. As this was a new concept, we worked very closely with the Reception Class Teachers, Head Teacher and the Local Authority to develop this concept. The space had to contain a shelter, activities, storage, all weather play and elements of the natural environment within a sloping site. After a great deal of research and development, PSA provided an award winning design for this facility and working closely with the school we made this design become reality. From the inception of this scheme, PSA applied for the funding which was successfully secured and then went on to procure the tenders for the construction element of this project. Delivering this project on time and on budget within an active school was a challenge, however this was made all worthwhile when the Reception pupils started to use this facility.
