Primary School Climbing Walls

Are you looking to expand your primary school’s sports equipment, or add some variety to your pupils’ playground activities? Climbing can be both mentally and physically stimulating for your students, increasing overall fitness as part of a PE programme or playtime pursuit, and improving skills such as communication and problem-solving.

We’ve built over 7,300 school climbing walls!

Over 7,300 schools and colleges have trusted EP Climbing to build their climbing wall so far. We’ll work with you to design, produce, and install a bespoke primary school climbing wall that meets the needs of your pupils. You choose the style you’d like, and we’ll take it from there.

We can even match the colours of your school climbing wall to your branding – and add a school emblem or crest to boost your students’ sense of belonging.

What type of climbing wall would be right for my primary school?

Traverse walls and playground boulders are recommended for primary schools, teaching young children the fundamental skills of climbing without the height element of a traditional climbing wall.

Traverse walls for primary schools

Climbing horizontally rather than vertically, known as ‘traversing’, students are never more than a few feet away from the ground. As such, traverse walls are perfect for younger pupils to play and learn basic climbing skills.

Needing very little space, traverse walls offer great flexibility in where they can be installed. We can build your primary school traverse wall indoors or outdoors, and either free-standing or mounted to an existing wall, depending on your preferences.

School playground boulders

Perfect for playgrounds, free-standing boulders replicate natural rocks, providing a more natural and adventurous feel to climbing within your school’s grounds. Boulders offer 360-degree climbing, with the possibility for students to climb on top if they’re feeling brave – however like traverse walls, pupils will never be too far from the ground.

Made from resin, boulders are built to withstand the elements of the Great British weather.
