Teachers and pupils at a Northamptonshire school are excited to start the academic year in new and modern classroom facilities thanks to the arrival of a sustainable timber-framed building.

Leading joinery manufacturer, Scotts of Thrapston, were approached by the 210-pupil Weldon CE Primary School following an enquiry for a new classroom by the headteacher Lynne Wildman (pictured), who was looking to replace an old inefficient and ineffective mobile classroom building.

She explained: "We had been looking for years for a solution to the problem of an old mobile classroom that was being used for the classes of our key stage 2 children.

"Scotts' modern and efficient standalone classroom structures seemed to be the perfect answer to replace our dilapidated building. From the very first contact I made with the company they have been responsive and easy to work with, coming up with a bespoke solution to meet our needs and providing a fantastic environment for our children to learn in."

Mrs Wildman was delighted with the completed classroom: "The old building was small, cramped and had no running water. The end result is amazing, better than we could have imagined. It's just so airy, bright and the children will love learning in there."

Scotts offers a core range of education buildings, but more often than not provides bespoke solutions to meet its customers' individual needs. Each of the designs, including the one at Weldon CE Primary School, are ideal learning environments as well as being environmentally friendly.
