Tom Benson

Playground Consultant

I joined Pentagon Play in 2019 and was welcomed by such a friendly, family style team. 

What I love most about being a part of the Pentagon Play team is how amazing their process is from start to finish. An outdoor learning environment can begin as a sketch, develop into a realistic design before becoming the children's brand new outdoor learning environment that they love - it is all very rewarding! 

I have a passion for sports and being part of a team. For most of my life, I have been involved in team-based sports such as football and basketball and in the most recent years, I have taken on the challenge of participating in triathlons across the UK which have allowed me to find new limits to what I can achieve.

Before joining Pentagon Play, I spent the previous 6 years in the paper industry. This left me wanting something more rewarding, and what can be more rewarding than the feeling that you are contributing to improving the standards of a child’s school life.
