A school is an educational institution designed to provide learning

spaces and learning environments for the teaching of students (or "pupils")
under the direction of teachers. Most countries have systems of
formal education, which is commonly compulsory . In these systems,
students progress through a series of schools.

The names for these schools vary by country (discussed in the Regional
section below) but generally include primary school for young children
and secondary school for teenagers who have completed primary

When designing a school, factors that need to be decided


•Goals: What is the purpose of education, and what is the school's role?
•Governance: Who will make which decisions?
•Parent involvement: In which ways are parents welcome at the school?
•Student body: Will it be, for example, a neighborhood school or a specialty school?
•Student conduct: What behavior is acceptable, and what happens when behavior is
•Curriculum: What will be the curriculum model, and who will decide on curricula?

1.The lack of space in school halls, gyms, canteens and other areas is the
cause of many of the problems blighting today's secondary schools.
2. Local education authorities were encouraged to reduce costs of
building programmes by adopting dual-use dining rooms that doubled
as entrance halls, corridors or classrooms.
3. Many grammar schools had sixth forms, which meant they were large
enough to offer a full five or seven year secondary school education.
4. Cost-saving requirements, rising populations and lack of consultation
with teachers meant new buildings were too small and schools were
forced to expand.
5. Temporary classrooms, bike sheds, toilets and other out-of-sight
spaces became sites for bullying, hiding, smoking and other anti-social
6. As a result of chronic lack of space, multipurpose rooms are still
common in many of these schools today, despite the problems of
food, mess, noise and waste.

 No construction should proceed if the plan or the design is

 All requirements should be fulfilled.
 We should think about the future expansion of the buildings
 Utilization of the full space available.
 Incase of existing buildings all the requirements of a school
should be fulfilled considering the NBC. If not then redeisgning
of those parts are required.
