Mobile Classroom Buildings

Specially designed classrooms of any size for any school application - delivered fast, nationwide, with minimal disruption to your school

Whatever type or size of classroom you need, from a small tutorial room to spacious classrooms for 30 or more children, you'll find high-quality, safe, stimulating classrooms to suit your every requirement in the Portakabin range.

Our standard Portakabin Classrooms building is available for immediate hire from stock, and incorporates two 64m2 classrooms that exceed Department for Education (DfE) guidelines on classroom size. Or we can create fully equipped classrooms of any size or configuration to meet your individual specifications, using our range of portable and modular building systems.

Crucially for schools, your new modular or portable mobile classrooms will be installed quickly, safely and efficiently, so there will be minimal disruption to your pupils and staff. You can add Portakabin classrooms to your existing school buildings or even create extensions to your classrooms using Portakabin buildings.

Better classrooms enhance education and improve results
The quality of the learning environment plays an essential role in the effectiveness of teaching and learning. In fact, 76% of teachers agree that the quality of teaching space has a vital influence on pupils' ability to learn.1 Research has also shown that test scores from children who are taught in well-designed buildings are up to 11% higher than those working in poorly designed buildings.2 All Portakabin classroom buildings are designed in line with Department for Education (DfE) guidelines.

Portakabin took care of the entire project, which was very successful. The liaison with Balfour Beatty Construction who were completing the main school build at the same time went very smoothly. Ultimately the building was delivered on time, ready for the whole school to open for business in September. The quality of the finished building is excellent and is a real asset to the Centre for Learning as a whole.”

Gary Udall, Project Manager

“Once we gained planning permission, we had to put the work out to tender. Portakabin offered the best value and won the contract. I visited the Portakabin site to view the options available and was involved from the very beginning in designing a bespoke classroom that met my requirements precisely.”

Sue Thackray, Early Years Yeacher
