Tudor Grange Academy

Secondary school toilets have to be robust, efficient and fit for purpose.

Centurion Full Height & Vepps IPS panelling


To meet the rigorous demands of this type of environment, all facilities in our academy have to be robust, efficient and fit for purpose. Centurion has fulfilled these requirements, and has given an excellent finished appearance in all washroom areas.

The project.

Rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted, Tudor Grange Academy is a comprehensive school in South Solihull. Also awarded 'World Class School' status, Tudor Grange is committed to delivering a high-quality educational experience for its 1,600 students.

Tudor Grange is a popular Academy in the local area and is proud to have a national reputation for excellence. As part of their recent renovation project, the Academy had a washroom refresh on their agenda, ensuring students had access to modern and hygienic facilities throughout the school.


The challenge.

The Academy strives to create a safe and secure space for its students and staff, giving everyone the opportunity to achieve and succeed.

They wanted to make the new school washrooms a more open and less intimidating space for all students. The washrooms would also need to be easy for staff to supervise, where needed.

Tudor Grange Academy had a requirement for robust, high specification toilet cubicles that would be able to withstand the rigours of a large and busy Academy; as well as a panelling system that would be easy to maintain.


Why buy pre-plumbed.

This short video helps explain the benefits of buying a pre-plumbed panel system. Amongst other benefits, it explains how a pre-plumbed panel system can save you time and money on your washroom project.


The solution.

Renowned for strength and rigidity, Solihull Council chose the Centurion Full Height toilet cubicle range for six male and female unisex school toilets around the campus.

Robust Centurion Full Height toilets cubicles specified in dark grey laminate, along with pre-plumbed Vepps panelling in yellow and green help create a positive, bright and airy unisex washroom environment. Combine that with the hardwearing materials chosen, Tudor Grange Academy’s washrooms could withstand even the most boisterous teenage antics.

The combination of Solid Grade Laminate (SGL) toilet cubicles and High Pressure Laminate (HPL) Vepps panelling is an extremely robust, hardwearing and economical washroom solution. In addition, the waterproof, smooth surfaces of SGL can endure the levels of heavy-duty cleaning and strict hygiene protocols that keep students and staff safe.

Along with robust fittings, the toilet cubicle’s SGL doors and partitions are impact, heat and scratch-resistant. Full height cubicles and fluted, floor fixed, powder coated aluminum pilasters give extra privacy and stability.

Installation was during school holidays which meant there were strict time constraints, so Vepps, our industry-leading pre-plumbed paneling system, was the obvious choice for Tudor Grange Academy. Tried and tested in our factory, the integrated basin plumbing and panelling is quicker to install, leaves duct spaces secure and inaccessible, and provides easier ongoing maintenance.
