This impressive community education hub has replaced a motley collection of ageing school buildings and created 80 new homes near Euston Station. With no reliance on public funding, the development has delivered a new Community Learning Centre, Foundation Classrooms and Primary Pupil Referral Unit, while upgrading the Victorian school building and transforming the outdoor play areas.
PTE led a wide-ranging options appraisal process and then provided a full service from concept to completion.
“It’s fabulous, it’s the future. It’s bringing together health services and education right from tiny children to the adult centres for learning.”
Cllr Angela Mason, Cabinet member for children, London Borough of Camden
“The Netley Campus really embodies the innovative nature of the CIP. By rethinking how we can overcome cuts to our capital funding for schools, we’ve been able to provide a new and improved learning environment.”
Cllr Sarah Hayward, Camden Council leader
“We have the highest level of deprivation in the borough and 25% of our pupils are on the special needs register. We have families that can be targeted to ensure they have the right kind of support or can even enter a range of classes that will better them. Being part of the complex allows our staff to learn from other teams that are in the building. We have the expertise to help the whole community.”
