Plincke collaborated with architects Baart Harries Newall on this school, which is located on two adjacent sites within a constrained urban setting. The infant and junior school grounds will be located on ‘Elm Street’ site and the playing fields on ‘Albion Road’ site. Juxtaposed between both, a new entrance space forms a welcoming place for parents waiting to pick up their children. The school grounds combine provide external learning spaces next to the classrooms for the infant school, and further apart from the juniors. These include combinations of hard and soft play areas, a habitat area and other learning spaces.
The project is due for completion in late 2010.
