Primary School Expansion

Maccreanor Lavington’s design for the expansion of Charles Dickens School delivers 130 additional pupil places whilst increasing outdoor playspace and gifting a welcoming forecourt to the public realm.
Refurbishment ‘micro-projects’ rationalised the existing building, providing new classrooms, resource spaces and WCs; spread over two years these projects avoided the need for temporary accommodation and focused the project budget on long-term gains for the school.
A generous new hall is built hard against the site boundary, replacing piecemeal outbuildings and service yards. The location allowed a rational volume uncompromised by complex interfaces and provides an easily managed stand-alone building for community use.
The playground ‘lost’ to the hall has been elevated to first floor level as a vast new rooftop garden. Two wide bridges create an immediate link to teaching spaces and provide double decker play.
The new structures are faced in a soft red stock brick paired with dark metalwork and stone signage, referencing the original school. The CLT structure is exposed internally, providing visual warmth and character in addition to construction efficiency and robustness.
The scheme embraces the legacy of the original London Board School as a proud civic building with a strong street presence and robust materials; it is an enduring addition to an exceptional school.
