Ditcham Park School is an independent day school for boys and girls aged 4-16 years. Pupils there proposed and won the opportunity to install an outdoor gym in an open school community vote, following a successful funding application. They chose to work with Fresh Air Fitness.
The students were keen to have a facility that could be used by both the junior and senior classes as well as their fitness club, so we needed to specify a range of equipment that would be beneficial to a wide range of ages and abilities. The gym was to be used as part of structured PE classes and for team training sessions, so it needed to complement the curriculum and the school’s wider approach to sport. With various parties involved – the PTA, Pupil Council and Teachers – it was important for us to ensure that all needs were met and that, ultimately, parents would see the value in the school’s latest investment.
We supplied and installed a six piece outdoor gym which would enable a full body workout. This comprised cardiovascular equipment including an Air Walker, Air Skier and Children’s Rider to get hearts pumping, while a Leg Press, Chest & Shoulder Press and Double Level Chin-Up Bar would facilitate whole body strength building. We designed the installation in such a way that it would present greater challenges as the pupils grew and developed.
“It has been a great addition to our outdoor equipment. It is so useful that the children can jump on and off the equipment at break times as well as having structured lessons or training sessions on the equipment. Fresh Air Fitness were professional, provided prompt quotes within our budget and I have seen first-hand the quality of the equipment.”

“The fitness club instructor is thrilled that he can run his club outside using this equipment and the members of this group are progressing quickly because they can use the outdoor gym to practice on in between sessions.”
MR PHILLIPS, PE TEACHER
“Parents are happy that the children are given the opportunity to be active and get outdoors in a safe manner.”
