Thrunscoe Primary School, Cleethorpes

S I Sealy worked with Extraspace Solutions on a new permanent extension at Thrunscoe Primary School in Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire. The brief was to provide a building that delivered five mainstream classrooms of 60.5m2 each which included associated toilets and circulation areas. The building itself was designed around a central courtyard which housed a pet’s corner and turfed, reading bench area.

The heating system is powered by a gas boiler, delivering hot water to an under-floor heating system. The benefits of such a system include maximum, evenly dispensed, heat output and minimum heat loss with no loss of wall space to unsightly radiators.

We achieved an abundance of natural light by having floor to ceiling glazed powder coated aluminium windows right around the perimeter exterior walls of each classroom. This was then replicated in the classroom wall which looked in to the corridor and once again from the corridor in to the internal courtyard. The result is natural light which passed throughout the entire building. This combined with the 2.7 metre internal ceiling height provides the optimum layout for a modern classroom setup.
