The Head Teacher Mr. Garth Hicks was delighted with the school’s new Clearview Modular Building and equally delighted that we donated a gift of book tokens for the school’s naming of the building competition.
Mr. Garth Hicks, Headteacher
On the 30th September 2013, we were contacted by Garth Hicks, the head teacher for Bardney Church of England & Methodist Primary School.
His school needed some additional open plan teaching space that included a toilet area, an oven, cupboard and wall units, sink and work surface and he asked us to visit him. We attended the school to conduct a free site survey and to see the intended location of the building and discussed the project in more detail.
We submitted our quotation for a new manufactured Clearview Modular Building, which was discussed by the Governors of the school. After nods of approval, Mr. Hicks then visited our premises to see a Clearview building of the same size.
Mr. Hicks was extremely impressed with the looks and feel of our Clearview Modular Building and after agreeing the purchase with the school’s Governors, he applied for planning permission. When planning was received an order was placed and the building was delivered and installed in May 2014. We also fitted coloured coat hooks and window blinds to the feature windows and a lower plastic coated steel vermin skirt.
We called Mr. Hicks after our installation of the building to ensure his full satisfaction and it was at this time that he told us that he was going to run a competition for the children of the school to name the building. We thought this was brilliant idea and offered £50 of Amazon book tokens for the prizes.
The results are in. They had lots of good ideas like the “Tardis” which came second and “The White House” which came third, however the winner was “The B-Hive” which links “B” with Bardney, and Hive which has RAF links along with rewards in the school, where children work towards their hive of achievements.
