A new courtyard for reflective learning and prayer has been opened at a Nailsea school by Bishop Ruth Worsley.
Staff at Kingshill Church School, in Pound Lane, have spent two years tidying up part of the playground and turning into a haven, which has been named the peaceful place by pupils.
The work was paid for with the help of grants from Wessex Water, Persimmon Homes, the Allchurches Trust and a donation from a resident.
The Rt Rev Ruth Worsley was invited to the school to officially open the area.
Headteacher Jan Thomson said: “It’s a place to be used for quiet and prayer and reflective learning like RE and art.

“It took us two years to get it restored. It was a real mess, it was overgrown and the pond was uncared for and full of sludge.
“It’s wonderful to have a place where people can have space and time to reflect within the busy life of the school.”
