Ashby School is an academy for 14 to 18 year olds.

Based in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire they are consistently one of the best-performing state upper schools in its county, Ashby has a 400-year history and over 1700 students on roll. 

We worked with the project stakeholders - school head, business manager, estates manager, library staff and and students - to design deliver a number of refurbishment projects covering school signage, canteens, lecture theatre, staff room & reception.


Blueprint proved themselves again during the remodelling of the school library, pushing the boundaries of what could be done within the space to make the spend even more compelling. Teachers now use the space for more informal sessions and, together with the learning hub, the library is unlocking teaching methods that weren’t possible in a conventional classroom. More students use the space for private study as well.

The new library is a great showcase of the school – promoting us as a progressive academy – and we receive constant interest in seeing the space from other local schools. It undoubtedly helps with securing new students.
