A new Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) is the latest development at The Worthgate School, which is described as a “game-changer for the community” by Principal Ian Gross.
“The MUGA is more than a playground; it’s where students from different backgrounds bond over a shared love for sports.”

The MUGA is a durable soft-surface area specifically designed for various outdoor sports, including football, basketball, and tennis. It’s located on the school grounds among the boarding residences. Additionally, it features an acoustic fence to minimise noise.
Ian Gross comments:
“The MUGA is more than a playground; it’s where students from different backgrounds bond over a shared love for sports, making it a hotspot for inclusivity and social integration. The teamwork and communication skills developed here extend beyond the game, fostering lasting friendships and a profound sense of belonging.”
“In an urban setting, a critical consideration was to minimise noise from the remodelled space. I want to thank our neighbours for taking the time to collaborate and support us throughout the project.”
