Forest School


Forest School is a stand-alone new early years wing, complete with school hall music room flexible classrooms and support spaces. The overarching concept is to create a home-zone in which children are free to wander and explore outside of the immediate classroom. This allows them to begin to gain both responsibility and independence.


A covered cloister unites the different buildings which themselves are articulated by distinct roof forms making the spaces clearly legible within the whole. Passive technologies such as natural ventilation rain water harvesting underfloor heating and solar gain create spaces which are a joy to teach learn and play in all year round.
