Following a re-organisation by the Local Authority to a two-tier system in the area, many parents recognised the benefits
which the All-Through Trust offers. As a result, an additional 30 children were enrolled in September 2016.
Diane Everett, the School’s Business Manager said:
“We had already placed an order for a classroom with another company in good time but when I chased it up in August,
it emerged that there was no trace of the order.
“It was a heart-stopping moment – we had no classroom, 30 children were on their way and time was running out. Fortunately
Portable Space came to the rescue and were brilliant. After contacting them in mid-August, they immediately carried
out a site survey and turned our order – and delivery – around in just one week. Danny Napier and the team really
pulled out all the stops. They arranged delivery of the 9m x 6m Pre-Owned Modular classroom on two lorries which
was then assembled on site, in time for it to be painted and fitted out ready for the children’s arrival on 5th September.”
Portable Space offers a range of new and used modular buildings – from heavy duty 'Steel Modular' for construction markets
to 'Compliant Modular' with a higher specification for organisations requiring more permanent accommodation. On this
occasion to save both time and money, a 'Pre-Owned Modular' was chosen from its network of stock.
Diane Everett concludes:
“It was a fabulous service and we were very impressed. On behalf of the Headteacher and Governors of Westley Middle we
would like to thank everyone so much for all the hard work they did in the incredibly fast turnaround required to
accommodate the extra children we were expecting. We would have no hesitation in recommending the company."
