New life for old school

Posted on 26 Oct 2018

Synergy Architects are delighted to have brought the former Heathfield High School building, in Earl Shilton, Leicestershire, back to life as a vibrant, modern primary school fit for the 21st century.

The project involved the conversion of a prominent Modernist 1930s building of local historic importance, to provide a two-form-entry (420-place) primary school, enabling the relocation and expansion of the neighbouring Newlands School.

The works restored the striking main building to its former pristine appearance and also included a new four-classroom extension, upgrading of fabric to meet modern thermal performance standards and demolitions of obsolete former high school accommodation.
