Hadlow Rural Community School in Kent, recently opened in September 2016. The school wanted to create a purpose-built dining hall that could be used as a hub for the school.

They wanted flexibility for the dining hall so it could also be used for parent’s evenings, breakout sessions and coffee mornings, there was also a need for the hall to be able to host conferences and training events, presentations and also dances.

The main challenge for SICO® was to deliver a suitable product that would meet and then exceed the high standards that Hadlow Rural Community School had set itself and help create a room that can be used for a multitude of different events, but also be comfortable place for students to dine every day, the school currently has 150 pupils but will reach 400 when they are at full capacity.
