Redhall School


Project Details

£5m to £9.99M

New Build


Resonant Architecture

31 Bartlemas Road , OXFORD , OX4 1XU

A new Primary and Nursery School for children with complex long term additional support needs, primarily associated with learning disability. The school accommodates 80 pupils across 8 classbases. The design is based on a series of ‘pods’ containing clusters of classrooms, which are arranged around courtyard play spaces. The pods are linked by glazed colonnades overlooking the play spaces and landscape beyond. Movable walls, shared facilities and activity spaces provide for flexible teaching and group work within each classroom cluster. The project also includes a separate new sports hall and dance studio linked to the school via a covered walkway, for use by Redhall and the wider community. This project was undertaken with Anderson Bell + Christie.
