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.

Don't just take our word for it, see what our customers say:

 “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

“We have worked with Portakabin on many emergency-response projects over the past ten years and they have never let us down."

Steve Beadle, Team Manager
