Independent Schools

Independent and private schools use our geodesic domes for a range of curricular and extra-curricular activities. A dome can be adapted to suit a number of uses and applications to give plenty of utilisation year on year.

A building with a difference

A geodesic dome is both a stunning feature and a practical space. Unlike a traditional building extension, a dome can be sited anywhere in your grounds – even on top of a multi-storey building. Having this flexibility opens up more uses which include, science laboratories, arts and crafts, horticulture, and for more grand designs the open plan layout is ideal for social spaces, cafeterias, libraries, and even theatres.

Stand out from other schools

When it comes to impressing the parents of potential students, your facilities including the school’s buildings make a statement about your approach to learning and the school’s ambitions. Indeed, your school’s grounds will be the first impression they get.

A geodesic dome makes an impression they won’t forget. Open Days will benefit from the extra space and give that wow factor to excite and enthuse potential parents and students.

Flexible siting

Where space is at a premium and you need to maximise the area you have, a geodesic dome creates a practical and stylish building quickly and effectively with minimal foundations. You can even put a dome of a roof (see the Watford Grammar School for Girls case study)
