Barton Farm is another exemplar from the Hampshire County Council stable, and it continues the tradition of simple, self-effacing school buildings. The plan is clear and simple with the main entrance and communal rooms facing west towards what will become the public square for the surrounding development. From here two wings extend, framing a well-landscaped playground.

Fifteen classrooms are broken into blocks of three, which open on to play areas to the south. The orientation is mediated by canopies that create generous thresholds for outdoor teaching and play. There is an elegant clarity to the building in section – circulation and offices are single-height, whereas exposed lightweight steel trusses in the classrooms create a generous roof space, allowing cross ventilation and north light. These roofs also lend a rural vernacular when seen from afar, reflecting the location on the edge of Winchester.
