St Mary Magdalen’s Catholic Junior School, Brent

  • Learning
  • Diocese of Westminster
  • £4.15m

A new three form entry school deftly replaced an existing smaller school on a congested urban site with new classrooms and an accessible hall, studio and ICT suite shared with the local community.

Facing the main road, the colourful double-height hall is a playful insertion into the street. A welcoming canted canopy emphasises the main entrance.

Along the opposite boundary, a two storey classroom building fills a gap in a parallel street, its large bay windows and brickwork relating it to existing terrace houses.

Between the classrooms and the hall there is an administrative and community link and a play courtyard with an SEN garden.
