Further to your article 'Back of the Class' (AJ 09.06.05) and the AJ 'Building Schools for the Future' conference, you seem to have missed one of the key messages. The whole point of the Building Schools for the Future programme is raising educational attainment and standards within our schools. Good design is one of the catalysts for this.

Also, schools should become wonderful resources for the community - we are in the age of 'learning for all', where being 'educated' doesn't stop at 16 or 18. The community facilities can complement and support the main objective of teaching and learning; it is not a 'one or the other' decision.
