LS 2.3 Editorial

In this edition, we are pleased to read about Ian Wilson discussing a potential design solution that provides all the benefits of repetition and standardisation but still allows for different solutions from standard school designs. Integration is always challenging - we are delighted to include an article about Heartlands High School and their work in integrating an autistic provision in their school, as well as a special feature on outdoor learning solutions.
