A classroom storage transformation from APMG

When Brockwell Junior School in Chesterfield, Derbyshire needed to clear the clutter, they came to the classroom storage professionals. The APMG design team is renowned for its school furniture solutions. They were in their element with a request for smart storage that reflects the lively atmosphere of the school. 

Providing a classroom where children are stimulated and can concentrate is key. The head teacher, Mrs Holmes, was clear that the storage needed to be bright and cheerful. It had to enhance the learning environment. And it had to have TARDIS-like capacity…

Vibrant classroom storage

Children come first at Brockwell and the well-being of each child is at the heart of everything the school achieves.

The school balances academic achievement with an enjoyment of learning, equipping students with knowledge, skills and confidence.

APMG’s designers complemented this ethos by injecting their design with the school colours of blue and grey – and infusing it with a little fun.

Clearing the clutter

And here is the result. The before and after photos certainly show that clutter is banished. There’s bundles of storage – every teacher’s dream. And our skilled designers even managed to squeeze in so much useful space that there’s actually room to spare! Not for long, we’re sure, but none the less, we spy some empty shelves.

The storage walls incorporate colour and texture in the tough MDF doors. The school uniform is reflected in the blue tones which unite the design. The blue-grey panels feature a twill-style surface designed to look like denim.

Putting the fun in functional

This clever classroom storage ensures no space is wasted. It reaches to the ceiling and the top lockers have auto-stay hinges to make it easy to pack everything in.

A variety of different Gratnells storage trays makes the most of the available space too. These handy drawers will keep teaching essentials close to hand but tucked out of sight.

The new sink units offer a wealth of classroom storage too. Here, everything can be stowed neatly away. As a result, there are no distractions from learning.

We’re delighted to have delivered this perfect classroom storage solution for Brockwell, a school that values smiles, warmth and a love of learning.
