LONDON – IBI Nightingale has released new evidence linking classroom environments and student performance.

A year-long study by the University of Salford and IBI Nightingale, recently published in the academic journal Building and Environment, found that the classroom environment can affect a child’s academic progress over a year by as much as 25%.

The study was carried out in 34 classrooms and involved 751 pupils in Blackpool primary schools. It’s gained international coverage, sparking the debate on the importance of school design in publications like The Guardian and Huffington Post.

The study was commissioned by our research and development team, IBI THiNK. The findings will be used to support our designers and help our clients to maximise their investment in the learning environment.
