Cheetham C of E Community Academy
Cheetham C of E Community Academy is a successful school at the heart of the local community. Larger than the average sized primary school, Cheetham converted to an academy in November 2011.
Earlier this year we were approached by the school to design and furnish their new build facility; which comprises of a reception area, support offices, six classrooms, a large practical room and resources areas.
With a blank canvas and working closely with the school, our brief was to create a modern inspiring interior, one in which the children would enjoy learning.
Designing and furnishing each classroom with the same footprint, whilst remaining flexible was key to the success of this project. Bespoke pieces of furniture were introduced alongside standard desks and chairs to truly optimise the space available. A quirky custom-made IT station and quiet reading area complete the look of each room. With storage tray units and student lockers helping to keep the space free from clutter.
The multi-functional practical room to the first floor is designed and furnished to host a mix of teaching styles; from wave desks for IT use and mini mobile tables for group work to a soft seating area for informal study.
Resource areas, furnished with moveable kite shaped tables and stackable chairs, provide spaces outside of the normal classroom environment which can be quickly and easily re-configured when required.
As well as furnishing their new classrooms, furniture was also installed in the head teachers’ and other support offices and meeting rooms. A relaxed seating plan adds the finishing touch to the reception area.
Complimentary colours were selected throughout the building to deliver a truly visually stimulating learning space.
Our extensive knowledge of the education sector meant that we could provide high quality interior design and furniture to meet the school’s needs and budget. The result: furniture and layout which enhances this new building.
We are extremely proud to have been able to help this exceptional school provide an exciting and secure environment within which the children can grow and develop.
