Case Study

Southern Cross Primary School Manchester

The scheme involved the demolition of the previous school which was replaced by a new single storey school with an added car parking area, a new multi-use games area plus an outdoor recreational area. The school has been built to teach children with social and behavioural difficulties.

The only previous access to the school was via an un-adopted road which had to be shared by vehicles and pedestrians. This access road has been widened and a path has been produced for pedestrians. A drop-off area has also been created at the north of the site to ease the demand on the single access road.

The new school is placed on the footprint of the previous school, but has been extended further southwards and eastwards. Environmental sustainability was integral and the school was constructed in line with a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ Rating.

Once the school was erected an extensive tree-planting scheme was implemented to improve the bio-diversity at the site through sustaining and creating habitats. Green travel is also promoted at the site through the school travel plan which includes the provision of safe cycle storage.
