Rebuild and refurbishment to double the capacity of the primary school from single-form entry to two-form entry

Phase two of the school redevelopment doubled the size of the school through the construction of a new-build two-storey extension.

This second phase puts the shared dining hall at the heart of the school while the upper classrooms are assigned to students in their final year.

A library and resource centre mark the entrance and point of transition.

Phase one added a new extension to the east that to replaced an ageing nursery building and included reorganising the entrance and administration spaces while creating flexible community facilities.
