A modern school needs modern furniture


An enormous amount of time is invested in planning a new, modern school. The result at St Mary’s Primary School was excellent, innovative in design and construction. This should hold good for the furniture as well. The focus in England in recent years has been increasingly on flexible learning, and classroom furniture must have a part in this. My advice to decision-makers: Look for real solutions and not individual products that together won’t offer the necessary flexibility for modern classroom practice.
