Grant Testimonials

Hatfeild Primary School

'This is the first time that we have used Schoolscapes funding service and we have been delighted with the result. The process was swift , efficient and required minimal input from school. Detailed quotations were provided and additional information about our project was sought via a telephone conversation.

Any questions we have had along the way have been answered swiftly by helpful and knowledgeable staff. Now we are just awaiting delivery and installation of our new Nursery climbing apparatus. A fantastic result!'

Frieda Perry

Queen’s Crescent School

'When in the process of installing an outdoor stage we approached a few different firms but were instantly impressed with the plans and costing provided by Schoolscapes. The whole process so far has been very efficient including detailed planning discussions with the team, concerning our needs and what we could afford within our budget.

The idea of using a lottery/grants organisation to support our application was fantastic and due to the support we received from Schoolscapes easy to apply for our play project. We are now looking forward to an amazing stage with an amphitheatre and musical instruments that otherwise we could not have afforded.'
