The School

The design of the school is innovative and circular, with an enclosed courtyard in the centre.

The learning and teaching environment has been carefully designed to provide diverse learning spaces, and to enable and promote in-built variety and flexibility. All classrooms will have immediate access to the school grounds in order to facilitate outdoor learning. As we grow we will work with children and other experts to create new opportunities for outdoor and indoor learning. The building facilitates our vision of ‘celebrating the art of the possible’.

The Faculty

The Faculty of Education is one of the largest groups of educational researchers and teacher educators in England.

The wide range of its expertise encompasses all stages of formal education from the early years through to the primary and secondary stages of schooling. It is well-placed, therefore, to make major contributions both to the advancement of knowledge and practice about issues of significance to education and children’s learning.
