The Hexagon is a wooden sheltered area which students at Greneway School can use if they want to escape the hustle and bustle that break time brings.
School spokeswoman Emma Daintrey said: "The children are really enjoying the Hexagon.
"They can use it for reading or as somewhere quiet to go at break times.
