This new administration and two classroom block was a two stage project, which required considerable planning to compliment the schools schedules and to provide a safer environment for the children in a confined site area.

The facility includes an administration block, which consisted of a reception, medical room, interview room, principal’s office, staffroom, staff amenities, parish office and also two classrooms.

The structure is a combination of structural steel, precast timber framing, trusses, block work, and reinforced concrete. The exterior cladding is both brickwork and compressed sheet with timber battens to match the existing school building. Landscaped and paved areas form the entrance to the school.
