Windale Primary School is located on the Blackbird Leys estate in east Oxford. The school comprises of one main building, which is set around two internal courtyard / playground areas. Part of the building is occupied by an Oxfordshire County Council Children’s Centre and a local Preschool occupies one classroom space and shares a large conservatory with the school’s Foundation Stage children.

The project is to investigate options for how Windale Primary School might be expanded to become a two form entry school to provide for projected Basic Need.

Frankham had to deliver the required accommodation of two classrooms, extension to F1 classrooms, staff room and associated spaces, conversion of IT to a studio, Hall extension and associated stores. The expectation was that some of the required accommodation will be created within the existing envelope through remodelling.
