ESP specialise in the development of educational based playgrounds. We provide engaging playground equipment and informative CPD training programs designed to take the national curriculum into the outdoors. We have been providing play equipment to schools for over 10 years and have used this depth of experience to create some of the most innovative and effective products on the market.

These skills are further increased through the inclusion of our CPD training programs, which are designed to up-skill staff and increase the sustainability of all our playground equipment and markings. Evaluations and testimonials confirm that the CPD training is informative and inspirational, while schools have witnessed considerable increases in physical activity.
