Project details

The design wraps the teaching faculties around a new garden and external learning space, with an internal covered street creating a social route through the building.

An important principle in siting the two schools together was to enable mainstream and special education needs school children to socialise and work together where appropriate.

A user-friendly landscaped environment facilitates the setting for track events, ball games and informal garden spaces.
