Take Flight in This Very Plane Classroom

Posted on 27 November, 2015 by Chris Grigorovsky

Let’s set the scene. You’re at school, ready to start the first lesson of the day. You begin to make your way over to your classroom, heading outside onto the school grounds and entering a large metal structure. Sounds pretty normal so far, but what if I told you that said metal structure was an aeroplane? Sit back, fasten your seatbelts and be prepared to witness education at its most unique.

Back in 2009, Children at Kingsland Primary School in Stoke-on-Trent were given the exciting task of choosing what they wanted as an extra classroom. So, with youthful imaginations running wild, the children decided that a commercial airliner was the viable option. The decision was inspired by a class visit to see a Concorde.

The plane is a decommissioned S-360 that was once used to operate to Spain and Ireland. It was acquired for £11,000 by the school and then with two years of work, it was turned into a fully fledged classroom, equipped with desks, laptops and large TV used as the whiteboard.

This comes to show you that commercial properties can be created from anything and truly capture the imaginations of everyone who crosses its pathInflatable Dream Castle.

Who would have thought that you had to have an in-flight safety demonstration before a lesson?
