Southville Primary School: Myrtle Campus
This new build project, on the site of the former Hayleigh House care home, was created to provide more classrooms for the school. These facilities are a welcome modern addition to those in the other school building, the Grade II listed Merrywood Campus. The school expansion is due to the rising number of young children in the area.
The Myrtle Street site is a new-build two storey Key Stage 2 junior school, with 12 classrooms, external hard and soft informal and social play areas, habitat areas and a formal multi-use games area. AWW’s design solution also included the preservation of the pocket community orchard in Myrtle Street as part of the project.
