We start by creating fresh exciting designs based on consultations with school councils, teachers and PT groups as well as our own personal experiences.
Inspiring all generations
Play is crucial to the development of children during Early Years and Key stages 1 and 2. In particular, physical and social interaction in the playground can dramatically improve behaviour inside the classroom. Providing opportunities for outdoor play and learning is also hugely beneficial for children that find the classroom inhibiting.
For HAGS, a school playground should offer a variety of experiences that allow children to expel energy, socialise and explore their outdoor environment. Our philosophy is to inspire all generations by creating exciting school playgrounds that combine fun with learning, support the curriculum and serve as an extension to the indoor classroom.
Our Schools Product Range
HAGS encompasses a wide portfolio of products, including trim trails, multi-play units and the Imagination Playground play system. We regularly come up with exciting innovations, such as Primary Arena, a multi-sports system specifically designed for Key Stages 1 and 2 with the National Curriculum in mind.
Working with you
HAGS provides a full service from design through to installation. We start by creating fresh exciting designs based on consultations with school councils, teachers and PT groups as well as our own personal experiences and the latest industry research.
As children are the ultimate experts in play, we visit classrooms to find out what type of playground they want. Talking with school representatives also helps us to assess the site, establish the budget and create a playground that offers plenty of play value, and is accessible to every child whatever their age, ability or disability.
Head Teacher at Margaret Wix Primary School, Mr Johnston, was looking for something colourful, durable and offering increased challenges for his Key Stage 2 children. The children wanted to bring music and sound into the area and the school had a preference for steel equipment, rather than timber.Read More
