Mark Ellerby

Mark Ellerby is principal of Mark Ellerby Architects, a small architectural consultancy with a particular passion for designing inclusive educational spaces.

With a long successful track record in designing within the Education Sector across all age groups, ASD inclusion within mainstream secondary education has become a specialism and a mission. Pioneering this approach for the National Autistic Society over the last decade, through the innovative Cullum Centre programme, Mark has extended the principles of the approach to other projects.

A better understanding of neurodiverse sensory needs has led to a wider look at the context of what it means to be truly inclusive; looking beyond ‘a classroom’ to the whole school.

Ultimately, it’s not merely about ‘design’, but working collaboratively with educationalists, to equip the teaching team with the best possible tool to do their job, and to provide the student with the best possible space in which to thrive and learn.

And it’s not always a Classroom.
