We worked with Pick Everard Architects and building contractor Vinci to design a £1.5 million landscape for the new school grounds including sports pitches, play areas, concourses and footpaths, study courtyards, native woodlands, meadows and ponds.

Located on a 75 acre site of a former dairy farm in south east Leicestershire the School offers first-rate facilities for 1,250 pupils. 

The landscape has been designed to retain the character of the rural setting and built on the framework of the existing landscape features. New nature zones were created which are also used as an external teaching resource. 

Limited pallet of high quality paving materials and a contemporary suite of street furniture were used reinforcing the character of the school.
