In September 2016, Paxton Primary School opened the doors of its new three form entry school in Gypsy Hill, south London. The new school is arranged over three/four levels and replaces a former one form entry school on the same site, which remained in operation as the new school was constructed.

Addressing the challenging programme and site constraints, a modular solution was adopted featuring a brick envelope for the majority of the building, with traditional steel frame construction selected for the double height halls stacked upon one another.
