Orchard Primary SchoolEdit profile
In February 2010, Planning approval was granted by Hackney Council for Rivington Street Studio’s £6m extension and refurbishment of Orchard Primary School in South Hackney. The project will form part of the first wave of projects within the borough funded under the DCSF’s Primary Capital Programme. The new build element, in addition to creating a new entrance and extended nursery accommodation, will provide much needed specialist space for the school including a ‘flexible learning zone’ which combines disparate ICT, library and resource functions into ‘project’ and ‘chill-out’ areas. The release of space in the existing building allows classrooms to be enlarged in line with national standards and includes improvements to ensure inclusive access.
