The University of Cambridge Primary School is located centrally within the North West Cambridge Development, between Huntingdon Road and Madingley Road. It has been designed by the award winning firm, Marks Barfield Architects, to reflect the inclusive ethos of the school in the built environment, and the integration of the building and grounds.
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.
The school has also been designed to promote sustainable transport and dissuade parents from driving motor vehicles to the school. The entrance to the school building is located adjacent to a bus stop and there will be provision for a large number of on-site cycle parking spaces.
