Judges’ Comments

“The new secondary and Special Educational Needs schools have been built ahead of much of the new housing at Northstowe and occupy a place among empty fields which will soon, become a town centre. The special facilities (including a hydrotherapy pool), empathetically designed classrooms and clear navigation, gave the panel confidence in its success.  At the secondary school, we saw the immense care taken in design, space management and aesthetics to create an inspiring and encouraging environment for the pupils. The facilities are excellent, from classrooms and science labs to performing arts spaces and sports facilities: no effort has been spared.”
