As part of our new build we aimed not only to have a new dining facility but also to be as creative as possible in using the space as a learning environment.

Therefore, we commisioned a local, yet world known sound, light and visual solutions company called Adlib to create our vision.They embraced of remit and created a state of the art yet extremely simple to use technology system that allows us to quickly set the mood and provide a creative environment to engage our pupils in learning and link effortlessly to our new challenge curriculum.

Research shows that engaging pupils positivity can increase interest and attitudes to learning, raise attainment and deepen knowledge and understanding of complex topics through interactive, experiential learning.

Leon and the Place Between

Every class has had a chance to jump into the Place Between themselves – via our Immersive Learning Suite. Following themes of the book, we’ve explored: circus skills; shadow puppetry; movement to music and looked at strange musical machines, developing our oracy skills and creative expression at the same time.
