Dale Community Primary School in Derby made a Lookout loft the centrepiece of their new library refurbishment.

Headteacher Linda Sullivan recalls how opening the post one morning introduced her to a new concept in learning. “We were in the midst of planning a major refurbishment of our elderly library when a Classroom Lofts brochure landed on my desk. I could immediately see their potential to bring life to both the library and the classroom. We had a site visit which was useful and helped us towards The Warren for our Foundation Stage 1 class and a purpose designed Loft for the library with shelves and a stage area. It was love at first sight not only for the children whose faces lit up with smiles but also their teachers who suddenly found their available floor space effectively doubled”.
