Local Community to Help Shape New Primary School

On Tuesday 12th February around 120 members of the public attended the existing Oldfield Primary School to see how the design ideas for the new school are developing and provide feedback. The consultations aimed to collate people’s ideas on the layout of the site, arrangement of classrooms, appearance of the school, access arrangements and any other suggestions to further develop the design.

ADP partner, Simon Kneafsey and senior architect, Claire Wheeler attended the engagement events over two days, where they presented design boards and answered the questions of pupils, staff, local residents and all other interested parties.

Following a public consultation last April, it was decided that Oldfield Primary School would be relocated to enable the school to expand and increase pupil places. ADP was appointed by contractor Leadbitter as architect for the new scheme.
