A REDDITCH school has celebrated the grand opening of its new learning garden.
Webheath First School Academy developed the garden to enhance the curriculum it delivers in an outdoor environment which stimulates senses and will motivate and inspire pupils' learning.
Jill Dempsey Garden Designs created the feature bringing together children and teachers' ideas, and the whole school community was involved in the the project.
The school was helped to fund the exciting work thanks to Webheath First School Academy Friends Association, ran by parents of pupils, Webheath Dental Practice and Biddle's local convenience store.
The grand opening was attended by local dignitaries, including the mayor Pat Witherspoon and town MP Karen Lumley.
