Using a special Takeley board game to discuss the school’s requirements and wishes, we established the importance of reading that lies at the heart of their building.
The library and story room with outdoor story-telling deck take centre stage in the school. Smaller teaching spaces and book cubbyholes appear throughout the building in alcoves and niches.
The classrooms are clustered around landscaped courtyards that make invaluable outdoor learning and play spaces. The oversailing roofs provide sheltered spots for quiet play and friendly chatter.
