The Coliseum

Amphitheatres - Outdoor Classrooms


The Coliseum is ideal for a variety of classes and activities. The stage can be used for almost any educational event; drama and role plays, storytelling time, regular class and dry activity based play.

Complete with tiered seating, the Coliseum is great for teaching larger groups of children. The intimacy of the design means this is especially good for lessons such as storytelling.

Like all of Pendlewood's outdoor classrooms, the Coliseum fits seamlessly with the Government's Learning outside the Classroom Manifesto and as such helps bring new dimensions to teaching and learning.

The stage is handmade in long lasting, sustainable and robust redwood timber. The surfaces are grooved for safety to prevent slipping and all timber is smooth to touch and the edges are rounded.

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.
