Demolition of Junior school, provision of temporary school and construction of a Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) framed building to provide high quality teaching environment for pupils aged 4-11 years. This will significantly improve upon the existing accommodation and resolve accessibility issues around the site and within the school building.
The scheme is due to complete 3Q 2023.

The building form focuses around a central entrance space and foyer, with west and east wings accommodating the main teaching spaces and larger specialist teaching spaces for creative arts, life sciences, technology and ICT, and music. A new double-height hall supports multiple functions including assembly, sport/PE, performance, and parents/carers events. The building also provides an area on the second floor with potential to expand Sixth Form teaching. This would support the Sixth Form in the adjacent Notting Hill & Ealing High School. Externally a series of high-quality landscaping, play and learning environments will be provided, including a welcome garden, science garden, outdoor teaching space and a separate, secure play space for the reception year pupils.
Works include the provision of a temporary school to accommodate staff and students during the construction period and will involve managing all works around a busy live school environment.
The building will be highly energy efficient and is on target to meet BREEAM ‘Excellent’ supporting GDST’s drive to achieve Net Zero Carbon.
