Great stories always have a starting point, where a seed of an idea grows into something special. It then exists in the imagination of the reader and grows in the hearts and minds of the listener.

Back in the summer holidays Mrs Sylvester, our Head of Pre-Prep had the idea of making more use of a great canopy facility in The Orchard playground, whilst working to help improve the school pond that will open this Spring. 

So today, York House is very proud to have opened its first outdoor classroom in The Orchard, dedicated to learning in the great outdoors. We hope the children enjoy being outside with nature to share ideas with their teachers, to talk to their friends at break time and have some of their lessons outdoors that both inspire and educate.

We are most fortunate to have a responsive, hard-working Parent's Association that have helped support and drive this project to fruition. Many thanks indeed also to our super Facilities Team for carrying out the construction work and to all the children who braved the chilly weather to support the official opening by the Headmaster, Mr Jon Gray and Mr Nye from the Parents Association.

Everybody's effort and enthusiasm has given our York House children a wonderful new facility that will provide a great seating area for the children to enjoy and has created another legacy that will be enjoyed for many, many years to come.
