Transformation of the existing school’s estate to replace the exhausted 1970s buildings whilst expanding the capacity of the school, set in new landscape, to create ‘a school in a garden’.
 
The proposals for Rotherhithe Primary will transform its existing estate, replacing exhausted 1970s buildings and expanding the capacity of the school to 630 children plus a 60-place nursery. The scheme is imagined as ‘a school in a garden’, conceptually extending and capturing the green space and openness of Southwark Park into the school site, creating a stimulating and protected outdoor environment for the children. Built in brick, the school hall and main entrance will be brought right up to Hawkstone Road to give the school a strong civic identity.
