The new Halifax Academy Primary School provides a 420 place facility within the grounds of the existing Halifax Academy Secondary School, with the two storey development consisting of a main teaching block and an assembly block linked by a double height entrance area. The approach with the design was to keep the building as simple as possible in form and internal layout.
Moorside Community Primary School is also based upon this design and will include an all-weather Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) and a public footpath diversion, required to improve safeguarding.
Copley Primary School is being delivered as part of a batched scheme with Moorside Community Primary School, with the designs based on the Education Funding Agency (EFA) standard designs, with bespoke schemes to suit the curriculum of the school.
For Todmorden High School, AHR has redesigned the scheme post feasibility, to improve the deliverability of the project in a live school environment. This project provides a replacement teaching block, with accommodation for the English and Humanities departments.
