Radstone Fields School

Client: Northamptonshire County Council

Construction starts 2016

Radstone Fields is an urban expansion to the market town of Brackley and this new school will provide primary and reception schooling for up to 420 pupils. We have been involved with the project from an early stage and assisted with the formation of the Radstone Fields Design Code, which favoured traditional forms.

The front façade addresses a public square where its formal appearance reflects the importance of the school within the new community.

The building has been designed with the appearance of a grand Victorian schoolhouse, with a modern addition to the rear. The materials palette includes local ironstone, natural slate roof and cast stone window surrounds and detailing to the front of the building with brick, metal standing seam roof and aluminium framed windows to the modern parts of the school.
