Bloxham School

This beautiful private co-educational school, based just south of Banbury had an urgent need to facilitate growing pupil numbers and also faced construction challenges as the site which was founded in 1860 is within a conservation area and surrounded by listing buildings.

Bloxham School required a new 4 classroom block to accommodate rising pupil numbers but had come up against traditional build complications due to its site location and the very small build window that it had available.

The design brief was a two storey classroom block which could be interlinked on both floors to an existing science block and also be constructed in a courtyard space between two existing buildings.

With limited access and construction space our unique hybrid construction method was ideally suited to answer these construction challenges.

The benefits of offsite construction and its minimal disruption to site allowed the school to continue to operate which was a stipulation to the project as pupils were at a critical exam point in the timetable.

Within six hours the building was craned into position and the badly needed additional block was visible.

A mix of Geography and Science rooms, storage rooms and staff facilities were interlinked to the existing building on two floors, ensuring a continuous flow between the new and existing building.

We were extremely pleased to be able to solve the school’s construction problems, traditional was not an option and our unique method was able to be delivered and installed on time and on budget.

Please watch our video to see the project and hear Charlie Little, Bursar at Bloxham School, experience of working with us.

Modular School Buildings

Modern Methods of Construction lend themselves perfectly for the design and construction of new school buildings that benefit from a truly unique modular approach.

A modular school building is one that is constructed off-site as individual units and is then transported to site and erected into a complete building. Modular school buildings are the perfect solution to additional classroom blocks, sports halls, science labs, humanities blocks and sixth form buildings. The end results is often indistinguishable from a traditional school building.
