Project details

New 4,000m2 inner city pre-school and primary school.

This school offered particular challenges as an inner city school on a relatively small site.

This school is an excellent example of how BDP’s extensive school experience and pro-active approach was of benefit to the design team.  BDP arranged a team visit to the Hampton Gurney primary school in London which was a useful example of a modern, recently completed, multi-storey inner city primary school.


  • provide a quality teaching environment in a city centre location
  • address the challenges of a restricted site requiring a multi-storey approach


  • excellent teaching spaces
  • provision of roof-level play spaces
  • low energy solution
