Joseph Hood School
London Borough of Merton
The new space continues the school’s preference for combined Key Stage 1 year groups by providing shared spaces between classrooms, while Key Stage 2 are provided with additional group spaces for further flexible teaching. Natural light and a passive environmental strategy have been developed from the conceptual design stages to create bright and open teaching areas and achieve excellent levels of thermal comfort and day lighting in classrooms. The building has been designed to achieve a BREEAM rating of very good and utilises a sustainable ground source heat pump system for heating.
