Located within an irregular site in close proximity to the town centre, the building has been designed to make maximum advantage of its site and aspect. Designed as a curved plan focussing on the internal play areas, the external circumference creates a larger protective barrier from the public side of the school whilst being provided with obvious glazed access points delineating public entry. The building is designed to hug the ground and allow prevailing winds to flow over the roofline creating sheltered play space for external activities. The project was nominated for a regional RIBA award.
