Leading special needs school in the UK takes the dive with Spaciotempo

Mary Hare School has chosen a Spaciotempo temporary building to house its new customised swimming pool. Delivered on a tight budget raised through fundraising, the pool is a safe and brightly lit environment for students with hearing impairment.

Located in Newbury, Berkshire, Mary Hare School is a registered charity and is the largest non-maintained special needs school in the UK. The school educates 240 profoundly and severely deaf children, representing the single biggest community of children with a hearing loss in the UK.

Swimming is a major part of the school’s PE curriculum, and the existing pool required an upgrade to provide a better facility for teaching this vital, life-saving skill.
