Case Study: South Bromsgrove High

3G Artificial Turf Pitch for Football

In its last Ofsted Inspection, South Bromsgrove High was graded as outstanding in all areas – achievement, quality of teaching, leadership, behaviour and overall effectiveness. Sport is an important part of School life and the school produces, supported by clubs, many county, regional and national performers across a range of sports.

Their new 3G Football Turf facility, also intended for local community use, includes self-contained changing accommodation adjacent to the 106m x 70m pitch which is designed for full size, 9, 7 and 5 a side play.

FieldTurf XM6 60-13 artificial turf was selected as the playing surface system; installed over a high performance engineered base complete with lateral drainage system. Goal and dividing net recesses are built into the layout with spectator hard-standing, and pathways for general and maintenance access. The pitch is floodlit with twin bar rigid panel fencing around the perimeter.

The project was supported by funding from The Football Foundation.

The new 3G Astroturf Pitch has been installed professionally and efficiently by S&C Slatter to the highest FIFA 1* Standard. The students at South Bromsgrove ‘love’ the facility and the quality of football at all levels of ability has improved in such a short time.

This is a fantastic facility for both the school and wider community.
