Primary School Outdoor Gym Installation - Connaught Junior School


Connaught Junior School is a mixed junior academy school with 335 children on their register. Having secured their sports premium, the school was looking for something unique to add to their range of facilities, to enhance the pupils learning and PE provision across the school. They chose to work with Fresh Air Fitness

The Challenge

Head teacher, Mr Sales, and his team wanted to install a gym that would make an additional and sustainable improvement to the quality of the PE they offer. It needed to be suitable for all abilities, allowing children to develop and progress over the terms and years. It was essential that the gym was safe for use with minimal supervision and robust enough to withstand heavy use during and after school as well as for pupils at the school for years to come.

Our Solution

We supplied and installed a nine-piece outdoor gym which would provide a variety of physical benefits. From our Children’s KS1 & 2 range we designed and installed cardiovascular equipment including a Double Air Walker, Air Skier, Elliptical Cross Trainer, Double Cross Country Skier and Rider to get hearts pumping. An Arm and Pedal Bike, T’ai Chi Spinners, Hip Twister and Seated Leg Press would facilitate whole body strength building, tone, balance and coordination.

Our new outdoor gym has been a fantastic addition to our physical education lessons. Installation was quick and simple. The equipment offers the children a challenging workout using very different movement, complimenting their learning greatly


The children love to use it and we have seen their confidence grow as they develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance while using this adult style equipment


This new sports facility has been an instant hit with our pupils. Used during break time, it keeps the children active irrespective of their fitness level, they all want to have a go!
