Award-winning bespoke classrooms

TG Escapes excels in creating bespoke, permanent modular buildings for schools across the independent sector. Each project begins with a unique design, tailored to your specific needs, whether that’s catering to expanding pupil intake, meeting the latest SEND regulations with a specialist classroom, or adding sports, leisure, or dining facilities. Built from a panelised modular system with durable timber frames and panels, our team can carefully customise each aspect of your building while optimising for at least 50 years of heavy-duty performance.

By opting for a modular building, you’ll be receiving an attractive permanent addition to your school with a faster turnaround and lower price tag than a traditional brick-and-mortar building. TG Escapes is the ideal partner for independent schools of all sizes, with hundreds of educational buildings constructed over the last decade, and a commitment to quality backed up by several prestigious industry awards.

Working with your school throughout

Our turnkey process offers independent schools a streamlined, efficient pathway, ensuring simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and safety. By consolidating design, manufacture, and installation under one roof, we significantly reduce the time, money, and effort typically associated with building projects. Our in-house design team works closely with each school to create inspiring spaces that meet precise educational needs, while our professional manufacturing and installation teams ensure each building is constructed to the highest standards of quality and efficiency, and that disruption to your site is minimal.

Working with TG Escapes leaves you with a fully finished building ready for immediate use, with our team handling everything from planning permission to plastering. Our straightforward service is backed up by our friendly, professional team, who have extensive experience across UK schools. This ensures not only a hassle-free project from start to finish but also the peace of mind that comes from working with a partner who understands the unique needs of your educational setting.


Hitting net zero as standard

Our in-house architects design each bespoke school building to achieve net zero in operation as standard using a fabric-first approach and the latest ventilation, heating and lighting technology combined with renewable energy such as solar PV. The buildings have a low carbon footprint benefitting from the embodied carbon of timber and can feature green roofs.

We prioritise the use of sustainable materials throughout, with all timber sourced from managed forests, alongside specialist low-impact foundations and recycled insulation. This commitment extends to our operational practices as well, with TG Escapes advancing towards our goal of being a net zero company by 2030.

Biophilic designs

We emphasise biophilic design within our buildings, an approach that looks to foster a connection with the outside world, with proven benefits to educational environments. We achieve this by prioritising natural light, ventilation, and easy access to the outdoors, which in turn will enhance well-being, concentration, and overall student and staff satisfaction. Our biophilic designs create spaces that not only look beautiful but also promote healthier, more effective learning.

“TG Escapes have been a dream to work with from start to finish. Since the project got the green light, I cannot speak highly enough about how professional they have been. Having had other developments done recently, we were expecting there to be significant disruption to our school day and general logistics but they have managed to go quietly about their business without impacting on us at all. We have always felt fully involved with the development.”
