The school grounds also include a living willow tunnel and a labyrinth marked out in large pebbles on a bark base, together with attractive areas of ornamental planting including a Japanese garden and sensory garden. These are cared for by the Year 5 after-school gardening club, who are also called in to help with major projects such as developing new allotments.

A living willow tunnel makes a great structural focal point and, with benches on either side, a useful meeting area for both teaching and play
