St. George's Junior School, Lower Years and Nursery
Client St George's Junior School
Contractor Feltham Construction Ltd
Arising from IID's 2011 masterplan the school has embarked on a series of phased developments, starting with a replacement Lower Years building and improved Nursery. The new Lower Years faces the main school and is set back to maintain views across the playing fields, with balconies and learning courtyards bringing the environment into the curriculum delivery.
The use of terracotta rainscreen cladding with a variety of warm orange tones reflects and updates the brick of the main school building while the use of green roofs helps meet the school's sustainable aspirations. Improved pedestrian and vehicular approaches combine with on-site coach parking and drop-off area to minimise local traffic congestion.
