Classroom Design

Classroom design isn’t just about creating a comfortable environment for pupils — it’s also about enhancing learning and development. Research tells us that how a classroom is organised has a direct impact on learning outcomes.

Here at TaskSpace, we take our responsibilities very seriously. We understand that our designs and solutions directly affect the academic futures of the students in your care. That’s why we’ve developed a tried-and-tested classroom design approach that can be adapted to the needs of each individual school.

Classroom Design

According to a study published in the Building and Environment publication, altering key aspects of classroom design can increase learning outcomes by up to 16 per cent. By implementing our classroom design principles in your school, you can boost academic achievement in the following ways:

  • Increase the effectiveness of collaborative working
  • Promote active involvement in learning
  • Create more rewarding learning experiences
  • Facilitate personalised learning experiences
  • Gather student feedback more effectively
  • Allow more movement and interactive learning methods
  • Provide more opportunities for discussion and engagement

Our Unique Approach to Classroom Design

Issues such as space, furniture, lighting, displays, organisation, layout and colour all play an important role in the overall efficacy of a modern classroom. That’s why we make these issues central to our unique approach.

We aim to put teachers and school leaders in charge of how their classrooms are used. As a result, we strive to provide flexible seating and layout arrangements that you can adapt to the needs of each learning session.

And we understand how much unnecessary distractions can interfere with lessons.

Everything we do is aimed at providing students with classroom environments that are conducive to concentration and engagement. From the positioning of storage units to the choice of desk, we analyse every detail of classroom design to create learning spaces that are as functional as they are aesthetically pleasing.

Classroom Design Issues We Consider

We approach all our classroom design projects from a fresh perspective to ensure we provide bespoke solutions that solve school-specific problems. Every classroom, school and teacher has unique requirements, but we often run into the same questions:

  1. How can we ensure our classroom design complements the school building?
  2. How do we design the classroom in a way that is conducive to 21st-century teaching methods?
  3. How do we make the best possible use of storage space without compromising the classroom’s educational qualities?
  4. What colour scheme best represents both the school and the style of teaching?
  5. How do we minimise distractions while creating an aesthetically pleasing learning environment?

Successful classroom design is predicated on finding answers to these questions. That’s why we take a collaborative approach to what we do, together with teachers, head teachers and school governors.
