A ‘baby boom’ has triggered a shortage of primary school places in the most highly populated areas of the UK, including London, where hundreds of extra places are needed
Christ the Saviour Primary School is expanding by one form of entry across its two sites in Ealing town centre. Both sites are constrained and required a creative approach to space planning and landscaping, and a careful programme of public consultation with neighbours, students, staff and pupils to achieve the required space standards.
On the KS1 site a new nursery building freed up teaching space in the existing buildings whilst refurbishment and landscaping works will re-establish the school entrance through the original Victorian school, complimenting and transforming the street frontage.
On the KS2 site the existing buildings were refurbished and supported by a new building that provides more highly serviced space. New classrooms, a hall and administration facilities will transform the site.
