Temporary Classrooms and Nurseries

Modular classrooms and nurseries for the short-term

Rented portable classrooms for learning

Our temporary classrooms and nurseries relieve the pressure of growing student numbers with short-, medium- and long-term accommodation solutions. Each of our modular classrooms creates a high-quality, comfortable learning environment that enables students to thrive.

A rapid solution to changing needs

With the secondary school population forecast by the Government to increase by an extra 207,000 pupils by 2026*, the pressure on space is clear. Algeco has fast, simple and affordable solutions for hire based on our experience of supplying thousands of modular classrooms across the UK. From a single temporary modular classroom to a teaching block or even a whole school, we’re here to help.

Versatile and flexible

Our learning accommodation can be tailored to your needs, including flexible hire contract terms to spread the costs. A whole range of configurations are available, offering light and airy teaching spaces, with modules stackable up to four storeys high. All our mobile classrooms are fully compliant with building regulations and DfE specifications and offer minimal disruption to learning.

Suitable for every stage of learning

Algeco’s education solutions include portable nursery buildings and crèches for pre-school age groups. Our portable nursery buildings are configured to meet the spatial needs of the seven areas of learning and development for young children, so there’s no need to compromise on the learning environment, even if it’s temporary.

Approved supplier of education frameworks

We’re an approved supplier to the Department for Education MMC1 Offsite Schools Framework, Fusion 21, MOD A (Primary Schools) and MOD C (Secondary Schools) frameworks. You can hire our temporary classrooms and nurseries for as long as you need them, so they’re ideal for managing peaks in pupil numbers or as a stop-gap while new facilities are constructed. And when you’ve finished with your modular classrooms, we’ll simply take them away.
