PUPILS at a school in Worcester are scaling new heights after the transformation of a playground wall.

Dines Green Primary School decided to install a colourful climbing wall after its latest Ofsted report said the school needed to brighten up its play area.

Staff then got in touch with local graffiti illustrator Sian Davis to help transform one of the bare walls.

The artwork depicts a mountain range with a river running through the middle.

Teacher Lee Dunn said: “The children love it. They just think it is fantastic. On the first day the children organised themselves to go left to right on it and they haven’t got off it since. It really does brighten up the playground.”
