In this episode of Future School, Principal Dr Gill Eatough works with architects, builders and designers who are developing the Hadley Learning Community.
Gill was recruited 18 months ahead of the school?s opening in order to have a major say in how the learning environment was designed. Here she discusses plans and ideas with members of the Interserve Strategic Projects team, who are building the school for the borough of Telford and Wrekin.
Gill faces a relentless work schedule to meet tight deadlines imposed by the PFI contract that underpins the construction of this extended school facility.
Decisions vary from the location of coat hooks to allocating millions of pounds of resources to the configuration of furniture and fittings.
