OVERVIEW

Jesmond Gardens Primary School

Jesmond Gardens Primary School is a new 315 place school (with 26 full time nursery places) designed to replace, as part of Hartlepool’s Primary Capital Programme, an existing Victorian school built on a nearby site. The 2,055 sqm school is designed around principles of transformational learning, which encourages the use of personalised, independent learning approaches that reflect a child’s stage, rather than age.   

ADP designed ‘learning bases’ for each key stage, fitted with acoustic curtains that can be easily drawn, dividing a group of up to ninety children into smaller configurations as required.

The central ‘heart’ area was designed to enable expansion of the teaching areas and main hall.  The two can be linked together, or separated, providing agile options for assembly, lunch times, and to house the thriving parent community. Similarly, the circulation spaces can be used as ICT-enabled extensions to the learning spaces.  

Internal and external space works to provide an integrated environment.  In addition to a trim trail, MUGA and sports pitch, the design also incorporates allotments and a wildlife area that provides a habitat zone.
