The Pupils Brief book cover

The Pupils’ Brief

Over the last eight years, the Sorrell Foundation has asked thousands of pupils what they want to improve in their schools. Their answers point to 15 ‘common issues’ in school design, which include physical places or things, such as dinner halls and uniforms, and operational issues like communications and sustainability. This booklet describes each common issue and provides a framework for discussions with young people whose schools are being developed.
