St Georges Bickley CE Primary School Expansion

Neilcott is delighted to have been awarded the expansion of St. Georges Bickley CE Primary School for the London Borough of Bromley.  This design and build project will provide a high quality, sustainable expansion to the school that will fully support, inspire and stimulate a 21st Century learning approach.  The project will enable the expansion of the school from a One and Half Form Entry to Two Form Entry Primary School.  Established in 1869, St. George’s has always been well known within the local area as being a small and welcoming community primary school. Bombed during World War II and subsequently rebuilt, St. George’s provides a happy, stable and caring environment whereby the children, staff and parents work actively in partnership to enable all children to realise their full potential.  The location of the proposed expansion was as a direct result of extensive feasibility and options appraisals carried out with the school. The site is quite restrictive in terms of usable external spaces.  The new proposal address the need for a hygiene room, medical room, and re-ordering of the circulation to the lower school classroom areas. The library has been expanded into the resource space, and this can now be opened up to the newly proposed landscape areas making it directly accessible from the inside.  The new studio hall space has been extended to include the existing under croft beneath the cantilevered classrooms, and the opportunity for this to open up further into the playground.  Malcolm Elster, Neilcott’s Managing Director, stated “I am delighted to have been awarded this scheme by the London Borough of Bromley, working for our “home” Borough has always been a goal and we will look to engage with the local community as much as possible”.St-Georges-1
