Instant school provided by Portable Offices

instant school


Following a fire in August 2016, The Academy Selsey suffered extensive damage and much of its contents was destroyed which resulted in the school’s 453 pupils being displaced and having to be taught at four locations in the Selsey area.

A massive portable village was required to provide an ‘instant school’ on the school’s athletics track.

As well as classrooms, the temporary buildings needed to house science labs, workshops and food technology areas. Portable Offices responded immediately to the school’s challenge and using portable buildings, some of which had previously been used to house staff and students from Bohunt School in Worthing while building work was carried out, the company set about establishing a temporary school within an incredible six week time frame.

Now, a massive capital expenditure project has resulted in a new build state-of-the-art education centre and the portable buildings will be returning to Portable Offices and will be available for hire or purchase.

Ready for 2019 installation!
