First look: HKR’s Prendergast-Vale College

  • Comment

HKR Architects has submitted these proposals for Prendergast-Vale College in Lewisham, London

The school will provide 50 part-time nursery, 210 primary and 600 secondary places as part of the Government’s Building Schools for the Future programme.

Designed to fit on a compact site over four storeys, the school’s learning spaces are arranged by ‘stage, not age’ with specialist facilities available to younger pupils.

The main school hall and sports hall are located on the first floor, while a central atrium is intended to create ‘a calm, non-institutional character’.

Simon Innes, head of education design at HKR said: ‘The Borough of Lewisham has very clear strategies about how to improve education through its BSF programme. The team’s achievement was to contribute design thinking at appropriate times in the process, and listen to the knowledge of others when that was required.’

If given the go-ahead the school is expected to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating and 60 per cent renewable target that will qualify for additional P4S funding.
