Wokingham Council approached the Rollalong Education team to provide them with a New 1FE Primary School in Charvil to be run as an 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.
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 all designed and developed by the Rollalong team.
We needed to be flexible in order to re-phase the site construction programme due to delays caused by the exceptional cold weather increasing the slow worm hibernation period by 5 weeks on the site. The first year entry of 24 pupils started as planned just 11 months from the initial enquiry, at the start of the new school year.
