Christ the Saviour Primary School, education

The population of Ealing has grown in recent years and there is a shortage of school places throughout the Borough. The opportunities for creating a new school or expanding schools in central Ealing are limited and the newly amalgamated Christ the Saviour School was encouraged to expand by one form of entry.

B|D landscape architects, working in close collaboration with Hawkins\Brown architects, undertook a feasibility study on the expansion of the two sites which was completed in July 2010. The governing body were committed to expansion subject to the project continuing to meet their key requirements for Key Stage 01 and Key Stage 02 with quality and variety of external play and learning space an important consideration.

The landscape strategy needed to make the most efficient and effective use of all external spaces within both school grounds to accommodate increasing number of pupils.

The design at Key Stage 01 site rationalised the entrance to the school with paving provide space for disabled parking. Porous resin bound gravel surfacing was used to increase play space around existing trees within the playground with soft play provided with rubber crumb safety surfacing.

The Key Stage 02 site reduced the existing expanse of tarmac using rubber crumb safety surfacing, provided a new dedicated entrance route for visitors, a flexible multi-use games area. Roof top play decks at the 2nd and 4th floors we designed to increase the area of valuable play space.

The landscape strategy has been to make the most efficient and effective use of all external spaces within both school grounds.  We are looking to incorporate innovative elements such as roof top play decks, flexible multi-use games areas, sheltered outdoor classrooms, a green link from grove to orchard at the Key Stage 01 site.
