St Cecilia’s Church of England Primary School, named after the patron saint of music and musicians, is a new school and community facility, built as part of a major new development of north Wokingham, where approximately 2,000 new homes were built with supporting infrastructure.
The school, which is part of the Keys Academy Trust’s family of nine high performing and distinctive schools, was built despite the COVID-19 pandemic, thanks to the benefits of off-site construction.
The building was originally designed and procured as a traditional build, but following the original contractor going into administration, Reds10 were able to work with Wokingham Borough Council, the Trust and other key stakeholders to adapt the design and provide an offsite solution and revive the programme.
Inside the School, each classroom is equipped with an interactive teacher’s board, adaptive ventilation, and generous space for 30 pupils. In addition, the School has a fully equipped Food Science classroom, 180m2 school hall for assemblies, school meals or events and a nursery. The School’s external facilities include two grass pitches, a MUGA and a rubber wet pour surface for the nursery.
The building also provides a 500m2 community facility with a separate entrance, which encompasses a new hall and recreation room.
To enhance the building and to assist with its performance, there are:
- A PV array on the roof which provides approx. 80kWH of electricity.
- A comprehensive sprinkler system serving the whole building.
- 4no electric vehicle chargers, which are also available for use by the public.
The 2,200 m2 school was built offsite in our East Yorkshire factory, with its 79 units up to 75% complete before travelling to site. The offsite construction process helps the council towards its goal of making Wokingham a carbon neutral borough by 2030, an initiative, which we’ve been proudly involved with through several of our projects, including Dinton Activity Centre (the council’s first net zero asset), Farley Hill Primary School and the award-winning Addington School.
