In contrast to the traditional classrooms where desks are arranged towards the front, new spaces for learning have irregular shapes and are flexible in order to foster different learning styles and modalities that adapt to the diverse 21st Century learning needs. Our learning spaces at The British Schools are designed to inspire and encourage independent as well as collaborative learning.
