Feasibility studies have investigated extending the school from 1½ form to 2 form entry, adding a multi-purpose hall and increasing the school’s outdoor facilities. The new buildings replace a poorly built 1960’s extension to the original Victorian buildings and link up with adjacent all-weather pitches. Various elements of the scheme have been implemented as funds become available.

The 2-court hall accommodates 5-a-side soccer, other sports and an audience of 400 with various stage options and is located at 1st floor level with new reception, nursery and changing accommodation below. The hall is wrapped around with a “green” wall to soften the bulk of the building and provide thermal and acoustic insulation while the supporting frame provides access and escape routes for the hall and viewing areas over adjacent pitches.
