Stourport Primary School
Explore, Dream, Discover, Achieve and be…’Simply the Best’ is the school motto and driver for Quattro’s design of the new 2 form entry school with nursery and children’s centre. The replacement school was to provide a nurturing, safe, inclusive environment for all children to develop their potential.
On a tight site bounded by a public right of way, Quattro’s design provides a single welcoming entrance for the whole school community; a spacious street links the halls, administration, learning resources and classrooms. The 2 storey class and group rooms all lead out onto covered external play areas.
A sustainable school that visibly demonstrated its green credential was seen as important. Quattro developed a strategy that incorporates wind and sun catchers, sedum roofs, biomass boiler building with a highly insulated, airtight envelope. Sustainable drainage design that is incorporated into the landscape and external play area makes a delightful feature.
