Our Proposals

Our proposals combine high quality residential development with a mix of commercial and other uses as well as a new state-of-the-art school building for St Mary’s along with a significantly improved public realm. As well as adding high quality contemporary architecture, much of the existing buildings and infrastructure will be preserved, re-invigorated and integrated in to the design.

School

The architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios have an excellent reputation in the education sector:

We believe there is a need to create social communities in educational buildings and we continue to explore how architecture can inspire learning.

Our reputation in this field has been well recognised with a dozen RIBA Education Awards. We were named Schools Architect of the Year in 2009 and Education Architect of the Year in 2005 and 2006. We are at the forefront of radical educational philosophy and are committed to the creation of excellence in spaces for teaching and learning.

The proposal for St Mary’s Catholic Primary School will increase the size of the school while dramatically improving the facilities.

The proposed school will include a new courtyard play area in addition to a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) being provided on the roof of the new school building. This can be used for a variety of sporting activities and will also be made available for the local community outside of school hours.
