Some would say that heating is vital in schools in the valleys of Wales – not traditionally the warmest parts of the UK and certainly some of the wettest, so the new blocks at Treorchy Comprehensive School look set to benefit from the warmth generated by the new radiators installed recently as part of the growth of the school buildings on the linear site that runs along the side of the valley for more than 500 yards.
Treorchy Comprehensive School in the Rhondda Valley provides its 1600+ students with a wide range of options when it comes to subject choice but as you might expect for a town famous for its male voice choir and its brass bands, music is high on the list of this school’s priorities. A close second is the commitment to offer a bilingual learning experience with the school doing its best to invest in the continuation of the use of the Welsh language.
Two new buildings on the school site have recently been subject of new heating systems and Stelrad Radiators has supplied the radiators to share the heat around the sixth form building and a new teaching block which amongst other subjects including Geography and History, houses the music department including a number of classrooms and additional small teaching rooms utilised by visiting peripatetic teachers.
The selection is for Stelrad Concord radiators in a variety of sizes throughout the public areas, corridors and in the classrooms and teaching rooms in the music school area. The horizontally banded radiators bring a modern look to the areas in which they have been installed, alongside the strong colours of the décor.
“We’re seeing our radiators selected for new build and additional build projects in schools, colleges and universities up and down the country,” says Head of Marketing at the UKs leading radiator manufacturer, Chris Harvey. “We’re seeing many schools follow the lead of Treorchy Comprehensive School in selecting our premium, decorative and designer radiator designs rather than the traditional standard panel radiators that have been the norm for many years.”
