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.

"We had great support on site and our project manager at Portakabin was brilliant - nothing was too much trouble for him, including amendments to the specialist University Eye Clinic areas, which helped the whole project run smoothly."John Ryan, Estates and Facilities Services, Anglia Ruskin University
“We had a very limiting design brief, with restrictions on the dimensions of the building and a very narrow but precise delivery window. Delivering all this with the flexibility and attention to detail that we required was a tall order for any supplier. Portakabin was the only company able to match our exact specifications and to promise delivery within the timescales we had in mind.Jamie Loudon, Director
