In 2006, All Saints Infant School federated with All Saints Junior School to create one school run as a single entity. Surface to Air Architects design remodels the entrance to improve visibility, create a more welcoming entrance for the school and encourage interaction between the children and the staff. The design also proposes a new combined central staffroom located as an infill block. This completes the ‘central spine’ of administration and staff areas joining the two schools into one. This well proportioned and naturally lit space will be a comfortable place where staff can meet together, exchange ideas and prepare their work. Through the manipulation of light, colour and texture, the building intends to inspire its users; and through its architecture, exemplify the unified brand of the newly federated school.
