In its last Ofsted Inspection, South Bromsgrove High was graded as outstanding in all areas – achievement, quality of teaching, leadership, behaviour and overall effectiveness. Sport is an important part of School life and the school produces, supported by clubs, many county, regional and national performers across a range of sports.
Their new 3G Football Turf facility, also intended for local community use, includes self-contained changing accommodation adjacent to the 106m x 70m pitch which is designed for full size, 9, 7 and 5 a side play.
FieldTurf XM6 60-13 artificial turf was selected as the playing surface system; installed over a high performance engineered base complete with lateral drainage system. Goal and dividing net recesses are built into the layout with spectator hard-standing, and pathways for general and maintenance access. The pitch is floodlit with twin bar rigid panel fencing around the perimeter.
The project was supported by funding from The Football Foundation.
