Isaac Newton Academy, Ilford
With an aim to equip every student with the knowledge, learning power and character necessary for success in all aspects of life, Isaac Newton Academy needed to ensure they gave their students the very best facilities possible in every area. When it came to the washroom refurbishment the area needed to be as secure and private as possible for students whilst looking bright and inviting to use and also offer easy supervision of the communal areas.
Read on to find out how we met the challenge.
Located in Ilford, Isaac Newton Academy opened its doors in 2012 as part of the ARK Schools group. Recently rated outstanding by OFSTED, it is a high-achieving, non-selective school that accommodates both boys and girls aged between 11 and 18 years.
The design and build of the Academy was done by Skanska. The unisex washroom was located in an open area and had to be easy to supervise, offering complete visual and audible privacy for the pupils.

Therefore Venesta's Unity cubicle system was chosen. It's seamless, flush-fronted design and full height doors, allowing for total privacy, made it the perfect choice.
Unity also has a low floor clearance for added privacy and robust stainless steel fittings, making the cubicle hardwearing and durable for those bustling washrooms. The indicator bolt has a discreet emergency release provision making it the ideal choice for education environments, where safety is paramount. We also offer a full range of accessories to add those finishing touches.

"Venesta's products are great value and the staff are helpful and committed; their full height cubicles are ideal for areas where privacy is essential. Venesta met the challenge of matching their cubicles to the Isaac Newton colours to fit in with the theme of the building"
