The Inwoods grounds offer two acres of beautiful playing area. Children have plenty of space to run, play games, build dens, work in the vegetable garden, play in sand and climb small trees.

A minimum of 75 minutes a day is given to outdoor playtime. There is a daily 25 minute walk, 1 hour a week for gardening, and the option every afternoon for organised sports and games. Children learn to skip, develop ball catching and throwing skills, work on balance and coordination, and participate in games. Emphasis is placed on becoming a cooperative team member and developing a positive attitude to physical tasks outdoors.

Each term, an all-school hike is planned, usually in a nearby setting, and emphasising stamina as well as appreciation of nature.
