Schools Work

We offer FREE school site visits and design consultations along with advice and guidance on funding and grant applications.

The schools team at Hollybush have over twenty years worth of experience creating improvements in school grounds across Leeds and beyond. We work with you to design and construct interactive wildlife gardens and outdoor classrooms that help you teach the curriculum in fun and exciting ways. Your students will benefit from learning in an outdoor setting, where they are free to express themselves and use their imagination in an environment that they might not normally experience at school or at home.

School outdoor improvements include:

  • Ponds & dipping platforms                                                         
  • Vegetable beds, poly-tunnels & greenhouses
  • Mud kitchens & music walls
  • Outdoor classrooms & seating areas
  • Living willow structures
  • Footpaths, steps & fences
  • Mini-beast areas
  • Hedge & tree planting

The schools team at Hollybush gives opportunities to hundreds of volunteers every year to learn new skills, build their confidence and increase their environmental awareness. Our staff are experienced in managing large mixed groups working on school grounds and are all DBS certified.
