A beautiful new Story Garden was officially opened at Bishop Road School on September 5. 

Vanessa Conte, chair of the PTFA at the primary school, said: “The garden has been a huge long term project with significant investment from the PTFA to redevelop an unused area of the school.”

The garden was designed and built by Different by Design, who created it based around the theme of story, taking inspiration from well-known books the children are likely to read. For example, there is a working 'Narnia style lamp', a secret garden door, and a yellow brick road.

Funded purely by the PTFA at a cost of around £25,000, the garden is now a key space for the children. Each class has already been out of the classroom to experience the garden and it’s timetabled for regular use.
