Russell Education Trust
Becket Keys School
The aim of this project is to create a new pupil entrance and improved approach to the school site from the south, an attractive new teaching block and a refurbished play area with better quality of netball courts and additional space for informal and social interaction.
SCOPE OF WORKS:
Works include the demolition of the former caretaker’s house, construction of a new pupil’s entrance at the south-eastern corner of the site and three-storey teaching block with shared community space and sixth form centre. Also demolition of Block 2, the extension and refurbishment of the play space to create three netball courts and informal play area.
QUALITY THROUGH DESIGN:
The new teaching block is designed to maximise space and usage and includes a new study garden for sixth form students.
The new pupil entrance is intended to facilitate the flow of pupils in and out of the school and develop the connection with the local community.
All works have been undertaken adjacent to the fully functioning school. Measures have been implemented to ensure minimum disruption during construction.
Becket Keys provides for both physical and mental special education needs. The new teaching block is fully designed and built with this in mind and is adaptable to allow children with SEN to work in mainstream class environments and specialist equipment to be introduced
