Cheltenham College, which was founded in 1841, is a prestigious co-educational independent school located in 72 acres of stunning grounds in the heart of the Cotswolds. The school takes both day and boarding pupils and has a focus on education in the broadest sense of the word (taken from their website). The buildings themselves are impressive and show the heritage and history of the school.

Signs Now were contacted to quote to provide signage for their Science Centre, which had recently undergone a large scale modernisation inside and out. This involved all laboratories being refitted with new equipment and a completely new roof, doors and windows. To complete the refurbishment, they required new signage that reflected not only the branding of the school, but brought a modern touch to the building.

The signage supplied was built-up stainless steel letters with 50mm returns. This included a version of the school logo, which is traditional in design but looks modern in the stainless steel. The individual letters work well on both the fascia and also on the stone walls, which reflect the local traditional Cotswold stone.

The result is an impressive Science Centre that is visible and attractive and completes the refurbishment with the feel of a brand new building.
