The Netley Primary Campus has an inner city location close to Euston Station and is home to multiple educational uses. Pollard Thomas Edwards devised a completely self-funding masterplan for the transformation of site, through the development of new homes above a new educational building and on an adjoining council-owned site.
Prior to redevelopment, the Netley Campus consisted of a mainstream Victorian primary school, a separate 1970s Foundation Unit, an ASD unit, a Community Learning Centre, and a Primary Pupil Referral Unit. Historically, the piecemeal development of the site had resulted in a disorienting layout, and some of the buildings were no longer fit for purpose.
Our solution creates a new building at the front of the site which houses the Foundation Unit and the ancillary educational uses, as well as retaining the original Victorian building, which continues to house the junior school. The new building provides a single reception area for the whole campus which runs directly through the building to the playground beyond and provides access to the refurbished Victorian school building. The school halls are located on the first floor of the new building and are accessed via the main lobby – making it easy for the local community to use these spaces outside school hours.
