Hove Park School Outdoor Gym

(East Sussex)

The funding will enable the installation of an Outdoor Gym and Street Workout Rig (like an older kids’ climbing frame) at Hove Park Lower School for the use of the pupils both during PE lessons and in their breaks all year round.

Our goals:

  • Improved school facilities for use in PE lessons - funding cuts over the years have left Hove Park School with ageing facilities which are disgraceful for a school of its size.
  • Active break times for more students at Hove Park School, giving them something healthy and active to do with friends.
  • Helping to reinforce the pride that every child deserves to have in their school
£25k project Currently ranked in

How we will achieve our goals

The money would be used to purchase and install an Outdoor Gym and Workout Rig which will last for years to come.

Where the money will go

All the students at Hove Park come from the surrounding areas and the project will promote fitness, encourage excercise and bolster pride in a school where investment in sporting facilities has been woefully neglected in this time of austerity.

    Hove Park School has made my two girls who had to move from Gloucestershire in years 10 & 11 feel very welcome in what has been a testing time. From day one the school has gone way beyond what I would have expected – they’ve been made to feel welcome and have been able to crack on with their education when a lot of things could have gone against them. Well done to all the Staff & Board at Hove Park School. Proud parent.

    Great idea and much needed! Hove Park School needs our support. It deserves to get this for all the hard work the students and staff put in to make it such a welcoming and inclusive school. It has had no help for buildings or equipment for a very long time and soldiers on regardless. Go HPS!!!

    The best idea for the best school.

    Hove Park School has outstanding teachers who all go the extra mile for the pupils (including my children). It has some of the poorest outdoor facilities of secondary schools in the city and this equipment would make a huge difference. Please add your votes and help have a real impact on young lives – 1,000 lovely, diverse, dynamic and deserving young people, for years to come

    thank you

    I’m a student my self I know this will be highly beneficial, for all the student across the valley.

    Hugely supportive staff group doing everything they can to enhance the educational performance of their students. Keeping fit and being active supports this. I hope you get the funding.

  19. Posted on September 3, 2017

    My old school, remembered fondly, hope you win!

    The Staff and students made my 3 children really happy at Hove Park and were always helpful and available at times of our need so only too pleased to support the future pupils. Good luck and thanks from proud parents.

    A brilliant initiative! Good luck!

  22. Posted on September 5, 2017

    Here’s hoping this project gets the support – it would help all the students at the school to stay fit and healthy

  23. Posted on September 5, 2017

    This outdoor gym equipment will be of huge benefit to the current pupils and the thousands yet to come. Research shows that children who are physically active during break times are better able to focus in lessons. Invaluable!

    Hope we win this wonderful opportunity to provide the school with some fantastic equipment for the children to enjoy fingers X
