Dersingham Primary School

Location Manor Park, Newham
Client London Borough of Newham
Contractor Willmott Dixon
Completed 2012
Value £6.9M

As a result of our  work with London Borough of Newham  producing their school estate Strategy for Change, IID were appointed to produce project briefs for 3 primary school expansion projects.  We then worked with Willmott Dixon to expand both Dersingham Infants and Sheringham Juniors in Manor Park into 3 Form Entry Primary Schools.

Due to tight urban sites both of these schools feature rooftop playspaces and are constructed from CLT (Cross-Laminated Timber), a carbon-neutral kit of parts which allowed the building shells to be erected in two weeks.

Dersingham features sliding doors and balconies to all classrooms, which are daylit and ventilated from a generous central breakout corridor.  The rooftop playground is home to the school's eco-garden and the new Nursery also uses sliding doors to benefit from the outside space.
