Cotham School design project 2012

Design students at Cotham School took part in a project to improve the function and design of the top of Cotham Gardens. This was initiated by the 'Friends of Cotham Gardens' to encourage young children to feel they have an involvement with the community and their surroundings and hence a respect for these.

We were very impressed with the quality of the designs submitted. They were judged by a local Landscape Designer, Hilary Barber and Rebecca Livingstone from the Friends of Cotham Gardens. The scores were based on Utility for the whole community, environmental and recycled elements, easy maintenance, aesthetics and value for money.

They judged the winner to be Jasmine Rawlinson with joint second place being shared by Hodi and Carla Johnson.

You will pleased to know that the RCAS have secured funding and permission to plant a wild flower meadow and add to the seating in this area. Many of the designs included wild flowers and additional seating so I hope the class see this a good development for their environment.

I have attached the 3 winning designs so that the RCAS members can appreciate them and the effort your pupils took in their project.
