What is a distributed school?


The Distributed School Project
'fields apart, streets ahead'


The distributed school is one which brings together a number of already established communities located in rural areas around the UK. The proposal aims to use buildings that have fallen out of use in these areas. Buildings such as banks, chapels and Post Offices were once very much a central part of the local community, a place to meet and chat. They were located centrally and are now closed or are closing, controversially.

This project envisages using these building by either buying. leasing or possibly gifting from organisations. Many have little value and lay empty resulting in the local community having lost its ‘centre’.

Using these properties, combined with high speed broadband connexions and the latest in portable/wireless technology the distributed school is very much a reality.
