Project Overview

Minster is a  two form entry primary school. The project included a four class extension including new office facilities, new staff room, external play area, refurbishment of existing listed buildings, re-arrangement of school kitchen and extensive landscaping.

We have provided a four class extension which is a light and airy teaching space for the staff and pupils. New office facilities along with a 2nd floor staff room and additional teaching space making effective use of the limited space.

We designed the building to reflect the existing buildings but introduce new materials such as cedar cladding and coloured render. We demolished the post war prefab buildings and installed a new play area.
