St George's Primary School

project name | St George's Primary School
location | Langton Matravers, Dorset
client | Diocese of Salisbury
project value | £2.75 million
contract | Stage A - E Appointment : Design and Build (retained as Technical Advisors to Client)
project brief | St George’s Primary School is located in Langton Matravers on the edge of the Jurassic Coast, partly situated within a conservation area. The project involved a small 100 pupil first school being transformed into a 0.5 form entry primary school, with the possibility to expand to a PAN 20 school. An associated Pre-school also forms part of the development.

The school site is small for a primary school and is further complicated by the extreme 3.3m level differences across the site. The new school has been designed to reduce building footprint and follow the topography of the site to integrate seamlessly within its context. A Purbeck stone colonnade runs along the front entrance façade and around the rear of the building, which opens out to the secluded landscape areas. A two-storey feature element provides access to a roof terrace for additional play space and a contemporary presence on to the High Street.
