This school was shortlisted for the RIBA Welsh Regional Awards Scheme and the National Eisteddfod of Wales’ gold medal for Architecture in 2013. The building was designed by Architype to provide flexibility and strong connections between the external and internal environments. FCA designed the external works including the overall layout, proposed levels, water features, play areas and soft landscape.
Outdoor learning and play is enhanced by a new water course with pond and reed beds, amphitheatres, a climbing wall, sand pit and forest school areas. Growing beds and an orchard with Welsh apple varieties complement the importance of healthy eating and communal dining.
