Education projects - our approach...

Our passion for design is shared with an equal passion for learning. Our team have been designing educational environments for over 30 years, listening carefully to staff and student requirements and aspirations so that our designs adapt to each situation and make a positive impact on learning outcomes.

 Our experience ranges from individual primary and secondary schools to programmes of multiple projects for sponsors, local authorities and central government. In each case, our approach starts with understanding a school’s pedagogy and exploring ways in which design can support and enhance that culture as well as embodying the school’s unique ethos and values in the environments we create.

 We aim to deliver buildings that are robust, efficient to operate and sustainable in the long term, but that also increase the effectiveness of every space on the estate. We think carefully about the identity of the buildings we design and work collaboratively to understand the ‘spark’ that makes each school an enjoyable place where people want to be and want to learn.

Rock Townsend have understood our aspirations and given us a building that helps deliver them. The School’s personality is reflected in the architecture.
