School Ponds

Ponds are one of the best ways to attract wildlife into your school grounds. No matter how large or small, a pond will guarantee the arrival of a whole range of wildlife including frogs, newts, insects and plants.

It will provide an excellent educational resource, right on your doorstep and is an exciting way to get children inspired to explore wildlife.

Activities such as pond dipping will provide an opportunity for children to view habitats, food chains and adaptations through first hand experiences.

By creating your own pond you will be helping to support our declining population of wildlife by providing a variety of creatures with the perfect home!

Testimonials

“A quick thank you for the wonderful pond renovations you so efficiently carried out last week…it now looks great and will once again be an inviting area to spend time in with the children, when the weather improves. We’ll put a little mention in our newsletter to parents about your company and how happy we are with our little pond”

“I just wanted to say how happy and amazed we are at the influx of wildlife we now have in the pond since you took ‘control’ of it. In 9 years we have never had newts or snails in it but in the year since your first visited these are now in abundance along with many other species all due to the changes and ideas you put in place. Thank you so much and I look forward to your next visit.”

“I just wanted to say thank you for the pond-it looks fantastic! Your guys did a really good job and we are very pleased with the standard of work and advice provided.”

Fleet Primary School, North London

Frances White, the Business Manager for Fleet Primary School in North London wrote the following after we had carried out work on their school pond:

“Our school pond was in need of a complete overhaul after many years of neglect and after trawling the internet and numerous unsuccessful phone calls I found Women with Waders.

From my initial phone call I knew I had found what I was looking for – Jo Pateman and Women with Waders.

Jo and her team are pleasant, hardworking, experienced professionals who transformed our pond and surrounding area to a wonderful oasis. At our initial meeting Jo understood our requirements and gave sound advice and ideas on improving the area.

The work was carried out as planned during the summer holidays and completed on schedule. They did a fantastic job which has made a huge improvement to our school environment. Thank you!”
