The British School of Barcelona - Newby Leisure Limited

Newby Leisure were very pleased to under take our first playground design project at The British School of Barcelona, Spain this winter.

Having been chosen by the Cognita Schools partnership (a global leader in independent education), we revamped the outdoor play area at The British School of Barcelona Castelldefels to deliver another project we are extremely proud of. A company first in terms of working outside the UK, the project offered new challenges in operations, all of which the company relished.

The idea behind this design was to create an engaging educational play area for all seasons, taking into account the summer climate Barcelona offers. Working alongside teachers and representatives at The British School of Barcelona was a great pleasure, as we took the opportunity to work in cohesion to give the children a place to enjoy for years to come.

Safe and stimulating area

To encourage social interaction we planned the layout to offer diversity in the way children can interact and play. As always, it's key we deliver a safe and stimulating area to aid young children's education.

This has been achieved here by connecting the unique areas together across multiple platforms to help with child engagement and provide an area where children can break out, but also be used for reading and teaching.

Everything you see below is handcrafted by our master joiners to keep in theme with the development plans.
