Case Studies & Testimonials
Here we have presented just a few of the projects we have helped design for schools, colleges and nurseries across the UK, ranging from simple classrooms to functions as diverse as art blocks, training rooms and outdoor learning spaces.
Shotton Hall Academy, Peterlee
An expanding school in the North East, Shotton Hall needed a permanent solution to additional classroom space and teacher training facilities. Due to the academy’s geography, a brick and mortar building was unsuitable however the Learning Escape classroom block presented itself as an ideal alternative.
“It was really a marvellous solution for what we wanted to do.”
Jake Cameron, School Governor
The Shires, Oakham
The Shires Oakham offers specialist residential care and education for children who have a diagnosis of autism and may have accompanying learning disabilities. The new educational space has allowed them to have a dedicated therapeutic space and more specialist equipment which has really enhanced the facilities they can offer their pupils and residents.
“The building gives us so much flexibility and our students really need that from their learning environment…”
Helen Jeffries, Head of School
Swalcliffe Park School, Banbury
SEN Performing Arts Studio
This specialist school for pupils with autism wanted a place for their pupils to express themselves and feel comfortable in a relaxed, open space. Using our eco-classroom design for their performing arts studio, the school has since opened the facility up to the local village community, utilising its space and function to exhibit local art and the pupils’ talent.
“It’s been amazing how it’s transformed how we work as a school and what the boys are getting out of it.” Kiran Hingorani, Principal
“It gives them their own space for them to come and use whenever they want…” Enrique Sanchez, Residential Care Worker
Sacred Heart Primary School, Coventry
Eco-Teacher Training Room
Short for space and desperately needing somewhere for their delegates to train, Sacred Heart Primary School opted for an eco-classroom that fitted into their surroundings and provided a modern, open space for their teacher training courses.
“I couldn’t believe how quickly the building shot up…. It just fits in beautifully with our whole environment…”
Paul Madia, Head of School
Danesfield Manor School, Walton-on-Thames
Needing a building which could be built around the working environment of a school and provide an open space for children to connect with the outdoors, Danesfield Manor School in Surrey found their ideal solution in our eco-classroom.
“We wanted someone to come in, be able to work around us and really sympathise and emphasise with what we needed as a school.
They’ve surpassed, in many ways, our expectations” Mrs Chalmers, Principal
Bickley Park School, Bromley
Bickley Park was seeing their pupils’ numbers increasing at a rapid rate and needed a new nursery for those coming into the school. Keen to have a new building which was sustainable and energy efficient, we provided the school with the perfect open learning space which was both eco-friendly and a stimulating learning environment for children.
“Eco credentials were a very, very important aspect of this project for us and we were delighted with the options they had available to us.”
Sam Patel, Director of School Development
Avenue Primary, Croydon
