Our design philosophy

We're an enthusiastic team of experienced architects, technicians and designers who are dedicated to creating inspiring learning environments for primary school pupils. Our foundations were laid in designing schools, and we have created more than 10,300 new school places throughout the UK since 2013. We’ve worked with all types and styles of primary school buildings, ranging from simple classroom expansions to multi-million-pound projects and innovative forest schools.

The many lessons learned through our research, design and build work has given us the capability to create innovative solutions for primary schools around the country. This allows our clients to benefit from our expertise at the same time as creating safe, sustainable and successful primary school buildings that truly make an impact.

"The greatest buzz is handover day. When you see a four-year-old bowl into a school, hang his coat on his peg and take ownership of the place, that’s amazing."

Simon Reid, Managing Director

We' re personable and hands-on, we put you at the centre of our design team and involve you throughout the design process. Working with us means taking your initial spark and exploring it fully, developing it into a stylish and effective design solution. Our team will guide you through all stages, working with you and with your community to ensure the smooth delivery of a high-quality primary school building. This collaboration helps us to deliver a completed project that you and your pupils will be proud of.

We’re passionate about creating school places

No matter what the project or your aspirations for the primary school building, our immersive and design-led process takes your individual requirements, budgets, challenges and specifications into account, to produce results that meet your aspirations.

A one-size-fits-all approach isn’t necessarily right for everyone but, having a bespoke design may not always be the best option either. This is why we’ve developed our three-tier approach to design - it’s all about collaboration. We’re passionate about every design we produce, and we’ll work together to choose a solution that meets your needs. We truly love great architecture and we want to make it accessible to as many people as possible.

"Our ideas and vision for the school were listened to and the plans adapted to suit our needs within the budget restraints we were under. The project was completed within an extremely tight timescale and the school was able to open in time, which was an amazing feat. We are very pleased with our new building and the children have commented on how they like their big, bright, airy new classrooms."
