Willmott Dixon Construction
A new build school building and landscape to cater for 480 pupils including a 60 place nursery school. The school design includes an ICT suite, sports hall, dining hall and a new community hub.
The new school landscape includes a tree lined entrance avenue, car park, multiuse games area, playing fields, play activity areas, amphitheatre, cycle track and wildlife nature reserve all within a planted landscape setting.
The site planning and design of the landscape have been influenced by the retention of the existing building during construction which caused the new setback of the new school building from the road. This has allowed for the creation of usable green space to the front of the school that also is visually inviting, linking the school with the community. This green space and the school playing fields have also become an important community asset.
