Planning Day with the Students and Staff

The architects agreed to work with pupils in the morning, their parents and governors in the afternoon and staff at the end of the school day on Tuesday 10th November 2015. Thank you to Mia’s, Jessica, Harry and Mollie’s mothers and to our Chair of Governors, Sue Sanderson, for joining us.


We built spaghetti and marshmallow structures, worked on room plans and on the overall plan of the relationships between rooms during the day. Our architects were very impressed with the ideas of all groups, especially our pupils, and have now been working on these. These photographs show some of our pupils at work during the day.
