Project Information

The new build replacement school provides 222 primary pupil spaces, and includes the provision of seven new primary school classrooms and a 30/30 pre-school nursery provision.

All classrooms are positioned directly from the main corridor that runs through the building. The main corridor incorporates generous activity/break-out spaces that are accessed directly by the classrooms. These spaces are extremely flexible in how they can be used, and incorporate a wet area.

Each classroom has direct access to the external spaces to incorporate external teaching when the weather permits. The design allows for future expansion via provision of an additional four classrooms to the teaching wing to accommodate an additional 132 pupils.

In addition to the classroom and nursery provision, the new school provides the following accommodation:

  •  Two general purpose rooms
  • Games/dining /assembly hall and associated storage & changing
  • Kitchen and community food preparation room
  • Associated administration and storage.
