A brand new climbing centre has been installed at a Chichester school, much to the delight of its pupils.

The climbing apparatus at Rumboldswhyke CofE Infants School consists of three different towers with various ways to enter and exit.

The site was fenced off during construction but children were able to watch their new fun play area grow. It has a climbing wall, scramble net, fireman’s pole and slide.

There is a safety surface all around it which is semi-permeable so it will drain when it gets wet. The climbing centre has to be supervised by a member of staff so it is not being used before or after school.

Headteacher, Fiona Sayce, said: “The tower provided a wonderful distraction at this difficult time as children and staff cope with the aftermath of the devastating accident that occurred before half term.”

The tower was partly paid for by funds raised by the Association of Friends of Rumboldswhyke School.
