Glenfield School

Glenfield Primary School is a new 1.5 form entry primary school built to replace an existing facility on the same site. As part of a partnering arrangement, we were appointed by the contractor at feasibility stage and remained as lead consultant through to completion.A key element of the planning and development was the need for the existing school to remain functioning as normal throughout, before being demolished upon completion.

The new school provides accommodation for 315 pupils, plus an integrated Speech and Language Unit, giving specialist support for 30 pupils.

Developed through rigorous consultation with key stakeholders, the new building provides flexible teaching accommodation and an inspirational learning environment.

It achieved a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’, incorporating many sustainable design features, including rainwater harvesting, underfloor heating and a management system to ensure efficient operation of the building’s services, as well as high levels of natural daylight and ventilation.
