School year 2015/2016
Renovation of Alderbrook school roof
During the 15/16 academic year we converted the formerly disused roof-space on top of Alderbrook's Victorian building into an inspiring creative garden area and art studio. We used mostly reclaimed and reused materials as well as many hours of unpaid volunteer time. This project was led by a team of 4 plus 20 volunteers - a hard-working group of parents, teachers, pupils and members of the wider community who share the ambition that this valuable and unique addition to the school’s teaching environment will help to connect pupils living in a very urban area to the ‘great outdoors’, to 'greener' living and will encourage a real sense of creative freedom.
