Yattendon School located in West Sussex, provides education for children aged 7-11. Due to the successful sale of some of their land, the client had the funds to make substantial changes to the school. The first phase was an extension to create a new entrance, administrative spaces and a ‘knowledge area’ consisting of a library, ICT and learning zones. The second phase was refurbishing existing classroom to transform them into more exciting places to study as well as adding more functionality for the teachers.
Pinnacle Furniture were appointed to refurbish 9 classrooms, each with a wet area consisting of a sink and a tap. Being a school, our Design Team wanted to make sure that the classrooms had enough storage to house all of their equipment. We created classrooms where there were multiple areas to study depending on the task in hand. For instance, the library had a formal teaching area and then a separate area of soft seating and bean bags for reading or private learning.
