Timotay Playscapes and Scotts of Thrapston

The buildings offer a compelling alternative to the cost uncertainty and disruption of a traditional extension, or the unsympathetic "plonked" temporary modular, volumetric cabin.

Timotay Playscapes and Scotts of Thrapston are working together to provide you with the next generation space solutions for education. We offer schools and nurseries a quick, cost effective and high quality permanent solution to increased space demand. We combine superb design, excellent service and a sustainable mindset in all that we do.

Scotts’ contemporary, carbon efficient timber-framed buildings are designed with young children in mind. Different materials are chosen to provide texture and interest and great emphasis is placed on creating a good quality environment to improve well-being and foster learning. The mono-pitched structures are voluminous, naturally ventilated and have plenty of day lighting.

Ideal Learning Environment

Scotts Education Buildings and Timotay’s playgrounds complement each other perfectly and are designed to provide the ideal learning environment in which children can thrive and achieve their full potential. We have given careful consideration to the specification of our buildings from every angle, to create modern learning spaces that meet the EYFS requirements and your budget.

Turnkey Service- Indoors and Outdoors in one go!

Timotay working with Scotts means a one-stop-shop so that you only have to contract one company for the complete groundwork, surfacing, school building, surfacing and playground. Our Turnkey Service provides peace of mind and a hassle free experience from initial design through to completed project handover. We take on the entire project leaving you to focus on the day job!


We have a range of single classrooms, double classrooms, preschool nurseries and small group rooms so please contact us to discuss your project. We very much look forward to hearing from you!
