This project involves replacing existing temporary accommodation with three new classroom units with adjoining WCs, and a new open space. The addition simultaneously completes the form of the existing 1960s school and simplifies the building's circulation pattern.

The school was keen for the new extension to have its own distinct character, and to this end the classrooms are covered with a simple monopitch roof which mediates between the height of the existing classroom blocks and the taller central hall with its butterfly roof.

The monopitch roof is punctuated by a series of largescale, three-dimensional rooflights which bring excellent daylight to the classooms, while the monopitch allows for cross-ventilation to these spaces.

The scheme is due to go out to tender in June 1998.
