Dame Allan’s New Junior School

Education // Newcastle upon Tyne

Dame Allan’s Schools have two junior schools, one on the main school site and one located on the opposite side of Newcastle at a distance of 6 miles. IBA were commissioned to design a new school on the existing school site to provide accommodation for a single junior school. The site chosen by the School was in a corner of the existing playing fields. IBA’s design solution responds to the street pattern and provides a gently curving single storey duo pitched building housing classrooms and support facilities.

The school hall is sited in juxtaposition to this. Classrooms all open out directly into play areas but are entered via a top-lit ‘street’.

Due to a number of planning matters this scheme has not proceeded.
