TEAM FOCUS – RTL Ltd
Poole Grammar School is used to the concepts of
“Excellence through Partnership”
all in an educational culture that is technological, enterprising and vocationally aware.
What follows is likely to be more appropriate to other schools where development is less restricted.
Good clear organisation, an easily legible plan and full accessibility
Spaces that are well proportioned, efficient, fit for purpose and meet needs of curriculum
Circulation that is well organised and sufficiently generous
Good environmental conditions throughout , including appropriate levels of natural light and ventilation
Attractiveness in design, comparable to that found in other quality public buildings, to inspire pupils, staff and parents
Good use of the site, and public presence as a civic building to engender local pride
Attractive external spaces with a good relationship to internal spaces, offering appropriate security, and variety of settings
A layout that encourages broad community access and use out of hours
Robust materials that are attractive, will weather and wear well and are environmentally friendly
Flexible design that will facilitate changes in the policy and technology, which allows expansion / contraction in the futureGood Design Principles
Generic approach, not necessarily relevant at Poole Grammar School
Let us establish the partnership!
