What we did
- Architecture and Town Planning consultancy
- Managing design and technical process through to completion
The existing building did not lend themselves to the specification requirements of the ESFA for modern educational facilities, hence the need for demolition as opposed to conversion of the existing building.
The new school building provides teaching space across two floors. The ground floor contains classrooms for the nursery, reception and years 1 and 2. Each year group has a shared cloakroom and WC. The nursery and reception classes have wet play areas and the nursery has a self-contained kitchen. The administrative areas are located in one area of the building, close to the main entrance. The ground floor contains the main hall, a studio, PE store and kitchens. The first floor contains classrooms for year groups 3, 4, 5 and 6with open resource areas.
