The most expensive state school in the UK will not have an outdoor space for students when it opens in September.
Alan McMurdo, head of Peterborough's £46.4m Thomas Deacon Academy, said "I think what the public want is maximum learning."
But Tim Gill, who led an official inquiry into children's play, said the idea "borders on inhuman".
The 2,200-pupil "super school", part of the government's city academy scheme, will replace three separate schools.
£46.4 million and they cant even incorporate a bit of concrete?
Not allowing kids to play? Maximum Learning?!!?
Makes me think the whole world is full of stereotypical George Bushs
