Set within the Olympic Park, the school is positioned along the site’s northern boundary to maximise south-facing external play space. The first-floor assembly and sports halls provide further covered outdoor space beneath, and rear roof terraces give views over London. Interior rooms are organised along a ‘street’ with visibility enhanced by internal screens and glazing; large windows provide a sense of openness. The palette of two-tone brick slips, and deep aluminium window reveals with bright yellow accents, creates a distinctive identity. Community accessible facilities such as the sports hall and fitness suite are fitted with a lift suitable for parasports teams.
