Outdoor play
At break times, the children roam the grounds: the ‘Greenwood’ and the ‘Spinney’ have been popular haunts for generations of Knighton girls. Here dens are built and trees climbed.

Tree climbing is a Knighton tradition — yellow dots on the trunks mark the points beyond which climbers should not venture. The adventure playground has swings, climbing frames and an assault course. When it snows — out come the school sledges.

Small furry animals, such as guinea pigs and hamsters, that have accompanied their owners to school, live in the Pet Shed, on the edge of a lawn, beneath a chestnut tree. An ever-changing assortment of runs and obstacle courses keeps the pets — and the girls — busy.
