Project: Reigate Parish Church Primary School

Entrant: PTAL Architects

The expansion of Reigate Parish Church School provides the school with a brand new junior school alongside their existing infant school.

It delivers a better offer for the children and families by avoiding an additional transitional challenge for pupils at infant stage, helps the school attract the best teachers and deliver much needed school places for the local authority.

The existing school was located within a single storey building on a significantly sloping site and with many technical challenges including limited access and amenity. Surrey County Council as freeholder of an adjoining vacant and overgrown “habitat” site, agreed to gift this to the school, to provide additional amenity.

The expanded school is designed to central government guidelines, including BB103 for both the internal spaces and the external grounds.
