Leading public sector door and window supplier Nationwide Windows is delighted to have helped Brooke School in Rugby increase its wheelchair storage space with the provision of a lean-to conservatory.
What’s more, the school was so pleased with the end result that it has been deemed too nice to use for storage, and so will soon benefit the children as an additional area filled with natural light in which to learn.
Brooke School is a broad spectrum special school for children from the ages of 2-19, catering for a wide range of individual needs such as autism, and physical, sensory, emotional and communication needs. Its core focus is to ensure that the children’s time there is spectacular, and you need only pay a visit to the onsite farm, forest learning area, and hydrotherapy pool to see that it’s doing what it set out to. It relies on funding, however to achieve its goals, so when it came to sourcing the conservatory, budget was always going to be a concern, but Nationwide Windows was proud to rise to the challenge.
Daryl Cashmore, Operations Director at Nationwide Windows explained:
“When Brooke School called and asked for a quote to manufacture and fit the lean-to conservatory, it soon became clear that the cost would exceed the budget they had in place. Having taken a look around the school, it really opened our eyes to the great work they do there and we decided to use the existing budget to provide the aluminium entrances at either end of the lean-to, and contribute everything else free of charge.”
Louisa Wallace, Finance Assistant at Brooke School added:
“We’re so pleased with the new conservatory at the school, and as soon as we saw the finished article – which was completed in good time for the start of the autumn term – we all knew it was too nice to use for storage alone. Combined with the outside area, we now have a larger safe space for children to learn and play in a light, comfortable environment. We couldn’t believe it when Nationwide said they would help us on the budget, I had to run and interrupt a meeting with the Headmaster to let him know the good news. It still gives me goosebumps thinking about it today. Thank you Nationwide Windows.”
