Writing On The Wall For Green Schools ?
A new green school has won Best Built Project Community Scale Scheme in the Mayors London Planning Awards. St Pauls Way Trust School in Bow, Tower Hamlets, East London, was rebuilt as part of Tower Hamlets Building Schools of the Future Programme

St Pauls Way Trust School is a landmark new secondary school which knits together a diverse local community to unprecedented degree and sits within the wider St Pauls Way regeneration scheme. The building and school grounds have been designed to be uplifting and inspiring for those that use it, with public functions carefully combined to offer a grand scale civic facility to the neighbourhood.

The school provides secure access between the public and private realm, allowing the community easy access to a library, sports complex and theatre from the street. Clever internal planning allows both pupils and the community to benefit from these functions in tandem and the school is free of the all too common unsightly fences and gates that form barriers between schools and their surroundings.

Designed to be both engaging and practical for pupils and teachers, the building comprises three floors offering a range of learning environments. These range from corridor-free spaces allowing passive supervision to classroom spaces that can be expanded easily into larger or smaller open plan spaces to encourage a variety of teaching styles to flourish.
