The Benefits of Getting Your School Refurbished
The experiences that we have at school shape us for the rest of our lives. From the subjects we take to the friendships we form, everything we do (and don’t do) will influence the path we follow, so it’s important to try and set up our schools right now to give the students of today and adults of tomorrow the best experiences possible.
So, let’s take a look in detail at what practical benefits school renovation can have.
Attracting the best staff
Good facilities aren’t just something that parents are looking for when they assess a school, this is something that will attract talented staff too. Whether it’s an eye-catching new building or staff room, or the exact equipment they need to teach their classes properly, a newly refurbished school is bound to make a good impression on potential new teachers.
Better pupil results
You might think that academic performance is tied purely to the quality of the teaching or perhaps the students themselves, but this isn’t true. A study carried out by the Islamic Azad University found that the characteristics of the learning space that different students found themselves in had a profound effect on their academic performance.
Whether it’s a case of having the right equipment at their disposal to carry out their learning properly or finding motivation in their new environment, students will thrive if you decide to renovate your space.
Parent first impressions
Whether we like it or not, first impressions are essential. Parents will often decide whether or not they like a school within the first five minutes of visiting, much like you would if you were being shown round a potential new home. With this in mind, by refurbishing some of the key areas of your school, you could drastically improve the chances of parents taking a shine to it.
Making way for new technology
Technology moves at a fast pace, so if you’re not constantly keeping your school and its facilities up to date, there’s a good chance that it will get left behind. What’s more, if you decide to refurbish your facilities entirely, you get the opportunity to integrate some new hardware into the design of classrooms themselves.
Improve mental wellbeing across the school
If you want to improve student and staff mental wellbeing, carrying out refurbishments is an excellent way to go about it. From improving sports and exercise facilities so students can let off steam, or improving student and staff common rooms so social bonds can be formed, the ways in which mental wellbeing can be improved through redesign are numerous.
