Engaging outdoor classrooms and dome buildings

Innovative and inspirational yet practical, our domes provide unique outdoor classrooms which stimulate creativity and bring learning to life.

With unlimited potential uses in any educational setting, our domes can help your school become a shining example of truly inspirational teaching. Enhance your environmental education programme and support your sustainable school initiatives. Our domes are versatile, secure, eco-friendly, long lasting and require virtually no maintenance.

Outdoor classrooms: Our growing schools range

Solardome® glasshouses enable pupils to learn outside of the traditional classroom, yet remain in a warm, dry and comfortable environment which still feels at one with nature and is full of natural daylight. Our glasshouses provide a unique outdoor classroom or breakaway space, ideal for hands-on teaching and growing schools initiatives.

With Horticulture on the National Curriculum from 2014, our glass domes provide the perfect environment and space to achieve those new learning outcomes. Click here to see the key benefits of a Solardome® glasshouse over a traditional glasshouse.
