New classroom, teaching and ancillary facilities for School in Turvey


An original purpose built 1980’s set of attached school buildings in the heart of the village conservation area of Turvey which has benefitted from three extensions previously to accommodate the growing pressures on school numbers and provisions. Although a relatively small school in pupil numbers, as part of the county-wide transformation from ‘Lower’ to ‘Primary’ schools, Turvey required a new classroom, teaching and ancillary facilities to ensure the older pupils remaining at the school for their later primary years benefitted from provisions they require.

Turvey Primary needed an additional classroom and cloakroom area as part of our conversion to a primary school. We worked with Alice from Darrington Architects to come up with a suitable design that met the needs of the children within the allocated budget.

Alice was a delight to work with, she quickly understood what we were trying to achieve and used her professional knowledge to produce two initial designs.  We then worked with Alice to ensure the final design would meet all of our needs. We are very pleased with the final build. Alice is an excellent communicator and kept us fully informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend Darrington Architects.
