Frovi has been working with Insightful Environments to enhance a 6th Form Centre for St Bart’s school in Newbury, a forward-thinking comprehensive school, one of the best in the country.
The original centre, which was too small to accommodate the needs of the 500 students who used it, had been designed to act as an independent study, social and café space. It also didn’t match the modern, vibrant image that the school wanted to portray to attract students, encourage collaboration and learning.
They needed the current space to work harder to accommodate the growing number of students, while providing robust furniture that would stand up to constant use. A mix of Frovi products was used in the final design to maximise the space usage and doubling capacity. The space now offers a range of settings that could be used for quiet study, socialising around our Block Steel Outdoor tables & benches, group-work on our Ego Stools and dining using our Block Steel Colour tables & benches.
The space has been really well received by students and teachers. The vibrant colours, design and furniture now represent the image of one of the country’s top 6th form centres.
