Windmill Primary School, Woosehill for Wokingham Borough Council

Wokingham Borough Council had an urgent requirement for a new one form entry Primary school at Woosehill to be ready for the new school year in 2013. We were approached in September 2012 to see if this school could be delivered in time.

The scope of work was extensive, including not only 1440m² of building but all external works consisting of groundworks, drainage and rain water attenuation, play areas included a MUGA. Other external works included providing car parks and fencing. The modules were delivered during four days in early June. During the subsequent weeks the build progressed at speed and the building was ready for the staff to get the school ready for the first pupils.

The reception classroom has been furnished with brightly coloured tables and chairs, toys and even an indoor sandpit. There are a further six classrooms, which will be filled during the next seven years, a library, food science room and a large sports hall, along with other administration areas.

Charvil Piggott Primary

As part of Wokingham Council’s commitment to solving the shortfall in pupil spaces, they approached the Rollalong Education team to provide them with a new primary school in Charvil to be run as an ‘all through’ academy by The Piggott School. An off-site solution was chosen due to the urgency of the requirement and the quality of the building Rollalong can provide.

Despite delays caused by the discovery of slow worms, the first year entry of 24 pupils started as planned in September much to the delight of both the staff and pupils. Rollalong were able to re-phase the site construction programme to allow the school to use the main hall, canteen and administration areas, whilst completing the rest of the school.

On completion the 32 module building includes a reception classroom, 6 further classrooms, a library, science/art room a fully functioning kitchen with servery, a 190m² hall and other ancillary areas. Outside facilities include a multi-use games area and tennis courts.

Redland High School for Girls, Bristol

Redland High School is an Independent school situated in a conservation area within inner Bristol. The
new building therefore needed to fit with the needs of the school, the Planning Authority and the local
residents’ association.
The building was designed in close liaison with the Junior School Head & Bursar, both of whom were
taken at an early stage to view a number of Rollalong’s other recent projects and to speak directly with
the end users.
Following this consultation stage, a mono-pitch roof was specified, together with a treated timber
vertical overlap cladding system, drawing on fi nishes acceptable to the Planning Authority and liked by
the school. The internal layout was fine tuned by the Junior School Head, providing uni-sex WC space,
a kitchenette, an accessible WC and a hygiene room, in addition to 3 good sized classrooms (2 of which
are interlinked via a large double door). Extensive circulation and storage space is provided by the extra
wide corridor linking rooms within the building.

St Paul's Junior School, Wokingham Borough Council

A bespoke art & general use modular classroom has been completed for St Paul’s Junior School, Wokingham.

The building was designed in close liaison with the School Head and Bursar, both of whom were determined to create a legacy building with a very different appearance. To this end a mono-pitch roof was specified, together with a treated timber vertical overlap cladding system, drawing on designs previously used.

To create an outdoor performance stage, a large decking area was provided to the front of the building, accessed via a 5m wide bi-fold door system.

The studio was acoustically enhanced to allow it to be used for music practice when required, and the extensive design consultancy stage even led to details such as a large number of external power sockets for use during school events. The school are delighted with the building and are looking forward to many great performances on the decking.

Expansion at Clewer Green School

Clewer Green Infant School were increasing to a 2 form entry so had a requirement for more classroom space. Having been originally built in the 1800s, space was of a premium and using a modular classroom solution was the only way to go.

Rollalong’s scope included the demolition of the existing concrete framed hall attached to a kitchen and toilet and the main school prior to the delivery of the modules to build a two storey extension with approximately 330m² of floor area. The new extension, consisting of 10 modules, includes a dance studio, two classrooms, office, group room, staffroom and storerooms with access being created to the main school.

The extended building was handed over ready for the start of the new school year in September.
