OVERVIEW

Haddenham St Mary's CE Infant School

Buckinghamshire County Council commissioned ADP to produce a feasibility report, reviewing design options for expanding two existing infant schools: Haddenham St Mary's CE Infant School and Haddenham County Infant School. The preferred option was for a new extension and reorganizational works at Haddenham St Mary's School.

Our design provides an exemplar teaching and learning facility with bright, modern, flexible teaching spaces for Year 1 and 2 pupils. We complemented the existing building stock and used quality materials throughout, including handmade bricks, western red cedar cladding and a zinc roof. Full-length bifolding doors enable each classroom to be completely open on one side, encouraging outdoor learning and connecting the building to the landscape.

Landscaping was chosen to complement the building, and to be easily maintainable. There is a large climbing wall of honeysuckle plants on the gable end wall to integrate the building within the landscape. Inside the building, a bright palette of colours stimulates and promotes learning, maximises engagement, and increases comfort. It also assists with wayfinding, and helps the children understand how certain areas are used.
