|A new two form entry primary school with nursery provision.|
Baart Harries Newall were appointed as architects in May 2003 to develop a design for a new primary school to replace existing junior and infant schools.
The scheme evolved through an extensive participatory design process, which involved the school staff, parents, school governors and Wolverhampton City Council. Presentations of the design in development were also made to the school children and the local community.
The proposed school is situated on a steeply sloping site. The design incorporates a split level plan which allows the building to step down the site in a cascade of roofs and terraces.
The building will be procured by a partnered contract in two phases. The first phase will involve the construction of the new school building. The second phase will comprise the demolition of an existing junior school and the construction of playground facilities.
