A school for children who have autism and Asperger’s syndrome has had its school hall transformed with a view of an enchanting forest after being nominated to win a bespoke wallpaper mural.

The donating organisation Create a Wall, an online store specialising in made-to-measure mural wallpaper for homes and businesses ran the competition earlier this year in the hope that they could reward a deserving school, nursery or sports club with a makeover.

Peterhouse School of Preston New Road, Southport was nominated by a parent of a pupil, Adele McAllister via Facebook. She commented that she thought they should win because of their commitment to ensuring their students are equipped with the skills to cope with everyday life and she thought their décor “could do with a boost”.

The school were delighted to hear they had been nominated and chose the forest scene as they thought it would add an imaginative touch to a room which is used for a multitude of activities. Work was completed by a decorator and the children were thrilled to see the finished result.

Gill Burnell Deputy Head Teacher said, “The wallpaper mural has completely transformed our school hall into somewhere that staff and students can really enjoy. We’re extremely grateful to Adele McAllister for nominating us and we’re happy that Create a Wall chose us as the competition winners. We think the wall mural adds an inspiring and calming touch to a room which is frequently used and I’m certain it will be enjoyed by students for many years to come.”
