This school resides within the grounds of the previously existing Coppice School in a wooded area of Sutton Coldfield near Birmingham. A phased development, the first phase was built while the existing school remained in use. Phase 2 involved the demolition of the existing school to make way for the remainder of the new building.
The project brings together mainstream and special educational needs, infants and junior schools with pre-school nursery facilities. The design incorporates a zinc external skin which wraps around the walls and roof, while the internals, windows and wall penetrations are in timber.
