Cundall provided multi-disciplinary consultancy services on Priory School, Community Special School. The school provides secondary age teaching facilities for young people with challenging special educational needs, particularly autism.

The multi-storey building and external landscaping sits comfortably alongside natural woodland designated as a site of Nature Conservation Importance. The design incorporates energy efficiency, naturally ventilated zones and a good level of natural daylight reflected via lightshafts into all the classrooms. The clean lines of the exposed concrete soffits achieves a robust, durable and flexible structure. Features of the new school includes a shared 'heart space' with a gallery, ICT cade, parents room, as well as a full range of educational, expressive arts and therapy facilities.

“School and parents are delighted with their new SEN school.  Some of the parents were in tears at the opening ceremony – saying is this for us?”
