The King Edmund School
The school has a strong vocational offer and offers community use of the site. The proposed building replaces the schools temporary accommodation which includes the reception, main hall, activity studio, changing rooms, specialist and general classrooms but does not increase the maximum number of pupils on roll at the school. The new building design is a simple two storey linear building that aims to bind the campus by enforcing the courtyard as the heart of the school with new circulation routes and external eating areas. The project brief has advanced sustainability outputs including solar fins to the long elevations, MVHR units to all learning spaces, user control natural ventilation and incorporation of a combined PV green roof.
The project is on site and due for completion in 2025.
