Working with Penoyre & Prasad was an extremely positive experience and a real partnership.
P&P-led innovations, such as the active learning spaces, work fantastically well for 21st century teaching. Equally, P&P were really responsive to the fact that new build schools can be sterile or look like more like the Tate Modern than places for children to learn in.
The finished school reflects this collaboration; it is warm, welcoming and natural. The spaces are built with functionality and use in mind, but features such as the design of the windows give each room its own character and personality. Equally, elements such as the sweeping main staircase, cathedral-like hall and bright Learning Resource Centre and terrace are simply beautiful.
We are very proud of our school. The children have the environment they deserve to learn in, and some parents and teachers are so impressed they want to move in!
