Case Study: Ponteland School, Northumberland

Location: Ponteland, Northumberland

  • Ponteland School is a development that includes a new primary, high school and leisure centre co-located within one multi-purpose building.
  • The school opened its doors to 1,600 high school pupils, 420 primary school children, alongside 52 nursery places, at the end of 2020.
  • Designed by Faulkner Browns architects and completed by Kier, the £43m scheme is one of Northumberland County Council’s largest-ever capital programmes. The site forms part of the council’s £142m investment in Northumberland’s schools.
  • Heckmondwike supplied just over 8,500 square metres of its market-leading Supacord carpet tiles for the project, which were a mix of Steel Grey, Flint and Anthracite. Alongside Supacord, there was also 400 square metres of specialist entrance carpet, Hippo in colour Anthracite.
  • Supacord is Heckmondwike’s most widely recognised product. Manufactured at the company’s site in West Yorkshire since 1973, the carpet has a widely recognised reputation for being the ideal solution for the education sector.
  • Supacord is available in 42 colours in both sheet and tile formats and is perfect for any education installation from nursery centres right through to higher education establishments.
  • Alongside Supacord, Hippo offers the perfect solution for heavy commercial entrance areas. With a substantial pile weight and ribbed structure, Hippo stands the test of time.
  • All flooring across the school was installed by long-standing Heckmondwike customer, Active Flooring.
