Bolder Academy


A ‘Bolder’ future awaits… Bolder Academy is a new, non-denominational, mixed secondary Academy in Isleworth, the London Borough of Hounslow. Set up by local primary and secondary school headteachers, to meet the demand for additional places. Bolder Academy challenge and inspire all students, as each and every student is unique, with different strengths and different passions.

The Challenge

Currently Bolder Academy students and staff are split across two sites whilst a brand new site is being built. Then, just before the Christmas holidays, the talk of mass covid testing for all students and staff, which was to start at the beginning of the Spring term, January 4th, presented another pressure for the Academy.

The Academy had to find additional space over the two sites and had to be ready for mass testing, so time was of the essence and was the best option to hire or purchase a temporary structure.

The Solution

Team Trafalgar prepared and presented three solutions to the Business Manager, with various options on a range of hire periods, as well as a purchase option. The client opted for a structure on hard standing, secured by anchor bolts and complete with Covid-19, compliant washable flooring.

The Result

  • Trafalgar moved quickly to install the structure and the team arrived on day one of the new term.
  • The structure was built within a day.
  • The announcement of a national lockdown came the following day, but fortunately, the structure remains in place for all key worker and vulnerable children and staff still attending the Academy.
  • The school’s Covid testing space was completely ready when the pupils went back on March 8th.
