Teaching Space Capacities

2022-23

2021-22

This spreadsheet contains lists of rooms which are often used for teaching. One tab shows Centrally Operated spaces, and the other contains School Operated spaces. This spreadsheet will be updated by Strategy and Space Management if new information is made available.

More rooms have become available since the autumn term, and some room capacities have changed. This is because of further ventilation checking being undertaken and the development of air flow modelling. The base ventilation standard has not changed, and remains in line with Government guidance.

How capacities are calculated

For Centrally Operated spaces the capacity shown is the lower of

  • The normal seating capacity of the room

or

  • The maximum capacity at which the ventilation rate in the room can be maintained according to prevailing government guidance.

For School Operated spaces the capacity shown is the lower of

  • The last capacity of the room advised to Strategy and Space Management

or

  • The maximum capacity at which the ventilation rate in the room can be maintained according to prevailing government guidance.
