Case Study: Blackrod Primary School

Blackrod Primary School in Bolton is one of our favourite projects. This beautiful outdoor building is now being used as a classroom, meaning the school has more room to teach students. It is occasionally used as a classroom for children with learning difficulties, meaning they can have the attention they need to excel in their education.

The Problem

The school needed a new classroom but didn’t have the space needed to provide it to their students. Their budget was also limited, meaning they didn’t have the funds to apply for an extension or go through the planning process.

However, what the school did have was a large outdoor space. Although it was big, much of it went to waste, as there was no grass or turf for the children to play on, leaving it barren and unused.

The good news was that this was the perfect space to build an outdoor classroom.

The Solution

Within two weeks, we were able to design and build a fully functional outdoor classroom for the school. This came with heating, electricity and laminate flooring.

It looked the part, with a sheen black finish that blended nicely with the school itself, and had enough room to house tens of students with space for desks and chairs.

The Result

We built the classroom within budget, incurring minimal cost to the school while still giving them the outcome they wanted. The space is now being put to use, giving the school the room it needs to educate its students.

Students enjoy the experience of an outdoor classroom, which is a pleasant change from being in the school building, especially in the summer months. Blackrod School are also happy with the new area, meaning that classrooms are less cramped, and students who have learning difficulties can be given special attention outside of general studies.
