Apple Distinguished School

Jesmond Gardens Primary School in Hartlepool named as Apple Distinguished School.

Jesmond Gardens Primary School becomes one of the few UK schools to be named Apple Distinguished School, recognising innovation in the use of technology and flexible learning environments.

Our 2012 project furnished the school and developed a furniture concept for ADP architects, working with Headteacher Jane Loomes and her staff, to create modular, transformable spaces to support many different sizes of learning groups, learning styles and activities. The school also established a no shoes policy, cited and praised by Stephen Heppell, and this award from Apple is recognition of the dedication and hard work of all involved.
