01 Utilising offsite construction in primary education

In collaboration with Galliford Try, Wingfield Primary school see’s the delivery of a 3FE community Primary School in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

The transformational design, using Offsite construction techniques developed by Galliford Try and DLA, provides the educational setting of pupils aged from 4 to 11 along with a 56-place nursery. 

02 Addressing local needs

Part of the Department for Education, Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP), the new school site lies within a wider masterplan of residential development and the scheme is intended to address a projected shortfall in pupil places in the local area. 

03 In-keeping with its context

The site is constrained and therefore a three-storey option was approved matching the scale of the proposed residential development. The scheme benefitted from funding from the local authority, enabling us to create a high-quality façade. The use of brickwork and cedar boarding creates an attractive and natural looking building that relates harmoniously to the wider landscape context which will weather softly over time. A series of hierarchical spaces encourages the progression of age groups through the school from the ground floor housing the nursery, through to the top floor housing the older key stage 2 students.
