Amphitheatres - Outdoor Classrooms


The Parthenon is a great stage for children in that it encourages outdoor learning, creativity and offers a fantastic environment in which to perform.

With two chalkboards attached it gives children the chance to actively indulge in educational activities such as drawing, spelling and handwriting and it is also ideal for teachers to teach traditional lessons.

The stage is perfect for children to deliver presentations and build confidence in front of others.

Another of Pendlewood's Outdoor Classrooms that fits in seamlessly with the government's ‘Learning outside the Classroom' manifesto, the Parthenon brings a new dimension to teaching and learning.

The stage is made from sustainable, long lasting redwood timber. This is durable, low maintenance and less prone to splinters than hardwoods.

Due to Environmental reasons we choose to use European Redwood. This is one of the hardest softwoods available and is suitable for exterior usage. It has a natural resilience, and the introduction of the preservative Tanalith E helps this timber have a greater life span than some hardwoods - without the negative environmental impact associated with exotic hardwoods.

Redwood timber is fully grown in 50 years. It is also harvested and replanted in 50% of the time that it takes a hardwood tree to reach maturity. All redwood used by Pendlewood is harvested from sustainable forests.

Tanalith E Pressure Treated Timber

The treated timber that Pendlewood supply is pressure treated Tanalith E.

Tanalith E conforms to the efficacy requirements of BS EN 599-1:19997, and is treated in accordance with the penetration and retention guidance given in BS EN 351-1:1996 to give a desired service life in the selected hazard class as defined in BS EN 335-1:11992.
