William Perkin C of E High School, Greenford, has science and languages as it’s specialisms and enjoys high academic standards. A disciplined study culture is complemented by curiosity and creativity which are seen as central to the development of a student’s experience.
Sport is an important element of school life and cricket is one of the main curriculum sports. William Perkin looks to provide the opportunity for the children to benefit from a superior level of sports provision which also embraces an extended programme of after school clubs.
Having previously built a highly successful 7420m2 artificial sports pitch for the school S&C Slatter was a ‘natural’ choice as provider for this further sports asset.
The Notts Sport NottsBase® D System was selected by S&C Slatter’s specialist cricket team for the new 4 lane coaching and practice facility. The 34m x 16.64m facility has a NottsGrass Ultra non-turf playing surface over the whole area and 3m high 868 twin bar heavy duty rigid panel weld mesh fencing around its perimeter. Timber kickboards are installed along the bottom of the panels to provide additional protection.
A retractable netting system creates the four 4m high x 21.96m practice lanes within a cage structure. Behind the bowlers white screening on the rear fence line creates an effective sightscreen.
