A modern, practical washroom solution for students at Urmston Grammar School

The Project  


Urmston Grammar is a highly successful co-educational grammar school for 11-18-year-old students. Situated in Greater Manchester, the school’s commitment to the welfare and pastoral care of its students is central to which is the provision of a learning environment made up of modern and safe spaces. 

Here, washrooms can pose a challenge for schools. Not only are they high traffic environments, but they are often hotbed of anti-social behaviour.

CCS was tasked role of supplying the washroom products for the refurbishment. This involved working closely with the project contractor, Washroom Fit-Out Company (WFC), to ensure the brief set by Urmston Grammar was met to provide a robust, safe and modern solution for its male and female students on the first and ground floor washrooms of its main building. The current facilities had suffered from heavy use and wear over time, meaning a refresh was required to bring them back up to standard.  

The Solution


To meet this brief, we supplied our Force cubicles that are well suited to educational environments. Offering a premium aesthetic yet durable option, this system is designed for high traffic environments, featuring bolt through, heavy-duty Satin Anodised Aluminium (SAA) ironmongery that is robust and secure.

Made from high quality Compact Grade Laminate (CGL), Force offers additional impact resistance. Indeed, being made from scratch, moisture, and graffiti resistant materials makes it ideal for school washrooms. 

Meanwhile, Solid Surface Wash Troughs were provided for a durable and practical hand washing solution. Urmston Grammar opted for a rectangular style (WT002) trough option with an exposed waste, providing a sleek, stylish alternative to typical vanity basins. This was supplied with deck mounted taps. This was sat upon our Laminate Vanity Units with access panels that are designed for ease of access to plumbing systems for maintenance and cleaning. 

For the washroom’s colour scheme, a smart mix of grey and white helped to create a neutral palette. Specifically, Polyrey’s Gris Cendre (G075) and Gris Orage (G059) were chosen for the cubicles, partitions, urinal modesty screens and access panels. The wash trough, meanwhile, was specified in Glacier White by Corian.

Following the refurbishment, Urmston Grammar now has a modern and durable washroom solution for male and female students on the ground floor and first floor of its building – facilities which can cope with high levels of use. 

Adam Chew, Director at WFC, commented: “CCS’s range of bespoke washroom products was always going to be the winning combination for this project, which for the client is all about providing safe and practical washrooms for students that are built to last. The execution of the project was seamless thanks to the timely planning and delivery of products.”
