Design for Classrooms – Enhancing the Learning Environment

It is well known and researched that the quality of the learning environment has a dramatic impact on pupils’ learning, behaviour and social interaction. We know that some spaces can inspire pupils and encourage them to want to learn, whilst others can distract pupils and sap their energy. Our young people come to us from a variety of backgrounds but our schools are a place for them to feel welcome, comfortable, confident and inspired. All teaching spaces should be attractive, inspiring and organised. It should excite pupils and staff. There are many schools all around the world creating innovative learning spaces that are transforming the experiences of their pupils, often on limited budgets and with restricted resources. The desire for change in schools is strong and the Gratnells Learning Room concept offers the support necessary to consider how your school can achieve excellent results in all its classrooms too.
