Video featuring the team at Shotton Hall Academy in Peterlee County Durham
We were thrilled to be appointed by the Academy at Shotton Hall last year, to create a learning centre that incorporates additional classroom space; a dedicated teacher training facility to support the school’s role as a National Teaching School and a new administration centre. The school wanted a sustainable, energy efficient building that would sit lightly upon the land, with minimal ground interference, and blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings of the school’s grounds. It was important that the learning environments created were filled with light, offering the pupils a fantastic space in which to learn and the teachers in training a sanctuary in which to master the basics of teaching.
We completed the build last summer and are delighted with the result and, perhaps more importantly, by the reaction of our customer: both staff and students alike love the new addition to their school. But don’t just take our word for it: the following video amply conveys the excitement of Shotton Hall’s Executive Principal, Lesley Powell, and other members of her team, as they talk about their new state-of-the-art teaching facility and what it means for the future of their school.
