Paul Murphy Architects were appointed as Executive/Technical Architects to deliver this new 3250m2 five form entry school expansion on the site of an existing operational school in North Wembley. Working with Graham Construction, we developed the RIBA Stage 2/3 design and successfully translated this into construction information. The school caters for 750 children between the ages of 4 and 11.

The new school buildings arranged over two storeys, provide teaching spaces, a new multi-purpose hall and dining facilities.

We carried out extensive collaboration with the school on the interior design, the look and feel of the classrooms, corridors and staff areas to create an inspiring learning environment.

The mood boards were excellent and have come together in reality to make the school look better than any standard primary.  Every time I walk down a corridor, I sense a purposeful and calm working environment that emanates warmth and harmony.
