Brumby Junior School

The Project
Brumby Junior School was one of 9 schools which we were awarded to supply as part of a Galliford Try package. Having initially been awarded the contract for the fitted furniture; we were then approached to supply loose furniture to ensure a consistency between all elements. The school’s vision was to create a welcome and nurturing environment for all pupils. Installations included 17 full teaching and storage walls, 2 large Design Technology rooms and a Food Bay area for cooking demonstrations; as well as a small library with a ‘Story Land Cave’ for individual reading.
Our Solution
Our Designer Laura Holt worked with the school to develop an installation that met all of their requirements. The teaching wall design incorporated the teacher’s desk and personal storage area, paper and book storage hidden behind sliding white board doors, all ICT elements, as well as a sink area for both teachers and students to use during activity time. Our design team also developed the Sit ‘n’ Store unit; a bespoke product designed especially for Brumby Juniors which features storage trays fitted underneath a padded bench. We installed a variety of loose furniture such as Flare and Geo soft seating, Poseur tables, desking and pedestals.

Customer Feedback
"We wanted our new school to be a reflection on our values: a safe, nurturing and supportive environment where everyone is challenged and encouraged to succeed. The use of bright, vibrant colours was a key factor for this; as the environment needed to be engaging and welcoming for our pupils. It was also important that the colour of the furniture matched our school logo.
Godfrey Syrett were able to offer a large portfolio to select from. As they had installed the fitted furniture; we knew the quality was good and that the loose furniture we selected would match the overall scheme. The team were helpful and forthcoming with their advice and experience, and we are very happy with the end result. The pupils love their new school – as do the staff!"
