Our breadth of experience in this sector covers all types of project including primary and secondary schools, further education campuses, special needs schools and even an educational exhibit for Oxfordshire County Museum.
Our skill sets are particularly well suited to developing sensitive school landscapes. We understand that at a basic level, successful school projects must resolve the practicalities of creating a safe, accessible environment which provides for formal and informal play as well as car parking and servicing. However, school environments should be more than this. They can offer opportunities to create inspiring landscapes comprising sensory gardens, wildlife ponds, outdoor classrooms and performance space. Portus + Whitton are very experienced at creating sensory gardens. These gardens can be very beneficial for pupils with severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties (SLD and PMLD).
