It is widely accepted that there is a positive connection between classrooms which enjoy good natural light and better pupil performance and even improved attendance. It makes sense – we all know how a couple of sunny days lift our spirits. So when headteacher Richard Williman oversaw the £12 million upgrade to his school, he was delighted that top class VELUX Modular Skylights would be a key feature of his bright new future.
The new three-story building on the site of the existing school includes inspiring workshops for vocational learning as well as typical classrooms, plus a brand new state of the art sports hall and modern dance studios. The new building is easy to navigate, which lowers stress amongst staff and pupils. More importantly, it is light and airy throughout, maximising every opportunity for daylight and fresh air, so vital for learning.
Architect floods building with natural daylight and fresh air
The architect of the new Withernsea High School, The Bond Bryan Partnership, specified VELUX Modular Skylights for the school project. As the skylights are 100% prefabricated, installation is smooth and easy for building contractors. From glass quality to motor power, speed and easy operation, the skylights are designed to work as a single system from the moment they are made.
