Commissioned by Warrington Borough Council, Strzala Architects (as SBS Architects) working in partnership with Seddon Construction won the design competition for this new-build 1.5 Form Entry primary school and nursery.
The design aims to provide a clear progression through the school life cycle with nursery, reception and junior classes arranged around an informal ‘learning street’.
Accessible community resources, sports hall and meeting facilities are located within a separate zone to facilitate out of hours / term use.
A variety of hard play, soft play, sensory and interactive learning gardens, plus habitat and wildlife areas are incorporated into the landscape strategy, taking advantage of the site constraints.
