Burstow Primary School

We revamped the tired old concrete facade of this Surrey Primary, before capitalising on wasted space within to extend learning – but not how you might think!

The Challenge

“Our building didn’t represent all the wonderful things going on inside, but our budget was limited!”

Claire Hodgson, Headteacher

Our Response

We met the challenge and more – cedar-cladding the exterior, before a phase 2 extended learning by transporting the children from the ocean depths to the furthest reaches of our universe and beyond.

“It’s sparking new ideas and  questions every day – we never thought so much could be achieved. We’ve a rocket literally launching from our stairwell and an entrance, so true to life, the children love to swim through.”
