Keeble Gateway Academy accommodates up to 210 children from Reception to Year 6, as well as a 26 place nursery. This was welcomed by the local community after residential developments in the Thirsk and Sowerby areas have resulted in an increase in pupil numbers.
The brand-new Academy includes seven classrooms, a nursery playroom, a library, staff offices, age group-specific toilets, a kitchen and a main hall over one storey. With learning and play in mind, the building has been designed to
maximise natural light and features a modern and spacious layout.
The construction process, which involves a modular and offsite approach, is safer and took considerably less time than a traditionally built school. As the groundworks took place on the Academy site, the individual buildings – known as modules – were manufactured and fully fitted out at the Portakabin factory in York.
I love the library area. How the entrance works. Roof lights in the corridor make the area light and open. Really lovely space to be in. Classrooms are exemplary. You can’t improve on them as learning spaces.

Priority School Building Programme
As part of the Government’s £4.4 billion Priority School Building Programme (PSBP), which rebuilds or refurbishes school buildings in the worst condition across the country, Portakabin was awarded a contract to deliver six schools in the Surrey and Kent batch.
