Outdoor Areas

We are incredibly fortunate to have so much space here at Hangleton!

Ideal for Outdoor Classroom, PE, Science, Art and much more; just some of the areas we have include:

  • two playgrounds (both with play equipment)
  • a large grassy bank
  • a pond and nature area
  • a sensory garden
  • an allotment
  • a covered forest school area

Outdoor Classroom

All children have the opportunity to work with our specialist Outdoor Classroom teacher. Sessions may focus on Forest School based activities exploring nature, or on using natural resources to craft, or using our allotment area to plant and grow. We work with the seasons and with nature, and we are out come rain or shine!


In year 6  the children are given the opportunity to spend four days at Hindleap Warren Outdoor Pursuits Centre in Ashdown Forest.

This mainly involves environmental and physical activities including archery, climbing, nature work, obstacle courses, swimming and team building.

The school staff work closely with the Hindleap professional staff in all the activities, which are organised throughout the days and evenings. The catering staff provide three hot meals each day.

The Centre comprises of a purpose built complex constructed in the style of the Swedish log cabin. There is a dormitory wing consisting of 4, 5 and 6 berth bedrooms, washrooms etc. recreation and dining areas, lecture theatre, classrooms and a field laboratory.

January is one of the best times in the year to participate in the Hindleap activities as the building, staff and courses are geared to the weather and the dark evenings provide a stimulus for close group awareness.
