Case Study

Classroom Block at Heronsgate School

Building type: Multi Purpose
Project price: £477k
Completion date: 2014

1.       Why did you want to develop an outdoor learning space?

As a large large and expanding school at Heronsgate, we were just running out of space and needed both additional classrooms and offices. We had a plot of land next to the school and were keen to maximise use of the available area by creating a two-storey building.

2.       What made The Learning Escape stand out from other providers?

We had received a good report from another school and liked the look of their end product. We were particularly impressed with the “can do” attitude, friendly staff and their knowledge of the product they were selling. The quality of the finish was also very impressive.

3.       What are the biggest benefits you’ve noticed for the pupils and your school?

The space is really light and airy, quiet and peaceful. It feels a real luxury to use rooms that are spacious but not echoey, bright and light but without glaring sunlight. The natural materials inside and out make a real difference.

4.       How did you find working with The Learning Escape overall?

They were friendly, efficient and got the job done. 4 stars.
