Wellington Primary School


We worked with the Borough and the School to understand their needs and to expand their existing facilities to accommodate a two form entry school for Reception through to Key Stage 2.

On a constrained site the new works involved the construction of a three-storey extension to the side of the existing 1920's school building, together with a single-storey extension for the nursery. 

In addition to the extra accommodation, the design focus was on increasing natural light and ventilation into the classrooms, encouraging social interaction within year groups, and from outside, sought to improve the schools main entrance and presence on Wellington Way.
