We were delighted to have Planning Learning Spaces featured in the UK’s leading educational magazine, the TES (formerly the Times Educational Supplement).  The publication featured an in-depth examination of some of the research highlighting the importance of factors such as fresh air, moderate temperatures and good lighting for children’s learning.  It also examined less measurable areas such as those discussed in Peter Barrett’s Holistic Evidence and Design (HEAD) study, including children feeling a sense of “ownership” of their classrooms.

Gary Spracklen, headteacher of the Prince of Wales School in Dorset and contributor to the book also featured, talking about his school’s own low-budget efforts to create “marginal gains” in learning through classroom renovations.
