Warden Park Secondary Academy

Location: Cuckfield, West Sussex

The Brief

Warden Park Secondary Academy is a coeducational secondary school for 11-16 year olds.  The School wanted to create distinct and practical science laboratories to meet the student footprint and teaching requirements.

Pinnacle worked with architect Kendall Kingscott and Fowler Building Contractors to assist in the refurbishment of 8 science laboratories in the School’s existing building. Along with the various science laboratory configurations, Pinnacle were also required to refurbish 9 resource stores and prep rooms.


What we did

The project was installed in phases during term time to meet the tight deadline. Each laboratory accommodates 32 students and are designed to suit different disciplines. We designed 2 curved, 4 straight, 1 hybrid with cranked wings and straight bench and double U-shaped science laboratories.

Each laboratory incorporates a Teacher Demo desk at the front of the class with sinks installed in the perimeter as well as appropriate eyewash facilities and lab coat storage. The variants in design helps to maximise the space in the room and provides the best teaching layout.

The School retained their existing fume cupboards, so we manufactured our furniture to accommodate the legacy furniture. We also supplied loose furniture including durable stools, laboratory tables, practical mobile Gratnell trays and whiteboards.
