We're thrilled to announce a landmark collaboration between Stratford upon Avon School, a beacon of the Design Engineer Construct! (DEC) Learning Programme, and TG Escapes. This partnership fostered through Class of Your Own’s 'Adopt A School' scheme, marks a significant stride towards nurturing the exceptional talent essential for the modern, digital construction industry.

Stratford upon Avon School has distinguished itself as a leading DEC centre, committed to equipping an incredible 878 students from Year 7 - 13 with knowledge and skills in digital engineering and sustainable construction practices. Its curriculum is a testament to the power of Design Engineer Construct!, preparing students to tackle the challenges of reducing the construction industry’s carbon footprint through innovative design and engineering solutions.

TG Escapes, renowned for its sustainable modular buildings, aligns perfectly with the school's ethos and ambitions. Expertise in employing Modern Methods of Construction and our commitment to sustainability not only complements the DEC curriculum but also offers a tangible example of how the industry can evolve to meet Net Zero objectives.

Through this partnership, students at Stratford upon Avon School will have the unique opportunity to engage with TG Escapes' professionals, gain hands-on experience with cutting-edge technologies and apply their learning to real-life projects. This initiative not only aims to inspire the next generation of digital construction professionals but also underscores the importance of collaborative efforts between education and industry in fostering innovation and sustainable development.

Alison Watson, CEO of Class Of Your Own, said, “TG Escapes is an SME. They don’t have pre-determined social value targets. They have a pressing need to grow and recruit and know their support will make a difference to the children of Stratford upon Avon School, today and for many years to come. Some exceptional talent is evolving, nurtured from 11 years old. I look forward to witnessing the incredible achievements that will undoubtedly emerge from this remarkable collaboration.”

Richard Harvey CEO of TG Escapes said, ‘We are thrilled to be supporting the Adopt A School scheme with the students at Stratford Upon Avon School. We look forward to nurturing exceptional talent by providing industry insights and access to real-life projects.'
