Shoreham primary school using single-decker bus as learning space
Children at the school, in Shingle Road, will play board games, read, eat and use it as a calm space.
Head teacher Darren Vallier said: “We needed to offer wraparound care to the school community and the idea of using a single-decker bus was the perfect solution. It is also unique.”
Within months of Darren sharing the idea with the local community, Chris McLelland, a parent at the school, was chatting with Adrian Strange, head of commercial operations at Brighton & Hove Bus Company.
Those conversations resulted in a single decker bus being donated to the school. The bus has since been transformed into something ‘quite magical’ and sits on the school playground.
Darren added: “On behalf of the school we would like to thank Brighton &Hove Bus Company for donating the bus and our PTFA for organising and paying for the inside of the bus.”
