Flexible Spaces in Schools

It’s hard to imagine a school without a flexible assembly and performance space at its heart. Such a space, complete with retractable seating, has been included by the UK government in its secondary school baseline designs.

Below are just a few examples of how retractable and removal seating can create a truly hard-working area that lets your school’s community flourish.

• A fixed retractable seating system with push-button opening and closing allows fast reconfigurations of a space

 Uckfield College (UK)

• A mobile retractable system allows seating banks to be positioned as each event requires. Mobile units can also be wheeled to a separate location for storage.

 King Arthur's Community College (UK)

• Retractable systems can be partially opened from the front or the rear to allow for different room configurations and audience sizes.

• We custom design all retractable systems, so we can work with the most awkward spaces. For example, L-shaped units, cutouts for sound desks, tapered units and extra large units are all possible. 

 United World College at Dover, Singapore

• Removable matrix seating simply slots into removable floor bars. There are no floor fixings. It’s quick to assemble, easy to store, and the tip-up seats save space and ease ingress and egress.

• Or, if you prefer, we can supply traditional stacking chairs on robust transport and storage trollies

 American Community School, Surrey, UK; Soham Village College, UK

• A range of multipurpose chairs is available which meet the highest level of the British Standard for ranked seating. These range from benches and durable plastic models to high specification auditorium chairs.

• Audience Systems can supply flexible modular staging solutions to complete the space.
