Seething & Mundham Primary School

Case study for Seething & Mundham Primary School

Seething & Mundham Primary School was designed in response to the Norfolk Schools capital development programme, which emerged from the failed Norfolk Schools PFI scheme. However, the previous design and siting were not favoured by the planning authority and so NPS were tasked with reviewing and redesigning the project.

The site was very constrained and substantial programme and construction difficulties were overcome including the discovery of “Great crested newts” and the relocation of mobile classrooms to enable the existing school to function until the new building was completed.

Designed by Michael Spicer whilst a Principal at NPS, this project won “Best Educational Building” in the LABC regional awards in 2011.
