External Spaces in Schools

External spaces in schools are really important. Well designed ones are a real asset for students and staff. The Causeway School, co-located with Hazel Court Secondary School (for students with SLD) in Eastbourne, share a great, well established courtyard space with plenty of mature planting.

Its design allows multiple uses including areas that can be used for a variety of activities including; external learning, social spaces, semi private / reflective spaces and play. It is just a really relaxing and attractive place to be for the whole school community in the very heart of the school. This really is one of the better examples designed almost a decade ago and is really well maintained.
