Currently, many schools and universities are operating a reduced timetable, with many students and parents opting to learn and work from home despite encouragement to return to the classrooms. In September, however, when students of all ages will be expected to return to schools, there will be a need for additional space in order to create "bubbles" and practice social distancing.

Versatile's new range of mobile classrooms are intended to give schools extra space to create the recommended bubbles of up to eight pupils. 

Versatile’s managing director Tim Cook said: “It’s understandable that many schools are concerned about available space, and while it might not be such a big concern at the moment, come September all students will return, and the logistics of social distancing may make things very tough.

“Throughout this crisis, we’ve tried to do everything we can to protect businesses and local communities with our COVID-19 range. By introducing mobile classrooms, we hope to further that commitment, by helping get pupils and teachers back into the classroom to make up for lost time. What's more, there's no minimum term contract and therefore minimal risk with the changeable climate.

“All the structures we create are compliant with health and safety regulations already. So, being COVID-19 secure is second nature to us – we have a wide range of compliant solutions available that are quick and easy to deploy.”
