09 Sep Architecture PLB, The St Matthew Academy
Architecture plb – The St Matthew Academy for Business and Enterprise is a new all-through City Academy for 1260 pupils aged 3-16. Built on the constrained site of two predecessor schools, the new building accommodates both primary and secondary pupils, with an additional 13-place nursery. The layout maximises the opportunities to share facilities whilst at the same time recognising the diverse needs of children of different age groups.
The scheme was Highly Commended in the BCSE Inspiring Design Award 2009.
