West Hatch School
New build single storey English Block building which keeps its profile low and unobtrusive, whilst providing the nine new classrooms. The proposed building is facing brickwork to match existing adjacent buildings, with a single-ply monopitch roof.
New build two storey Sports Hall designed to accommodate the internal heights necessary for a range of indoor sports. The proposed building is constructed from facing brickwork with high level profiled metal cladding, and a single-ply flat roof above. A single storey of ancillary accommodation is wrapped around the south and eastern sides of this. The need for varying internal heights in the ancillary accommodation is resolved by means of a steadily undulating roof profile, which also gives some visual articulation to the building form. The ancillary accommodation to the sports hall includes two changing rooms for approximately 35 pupils in each with showers and WCs integral to the facility. The changing rooms are designed to be used either as separate gender denominations, or as separate team rooms and, whilst they are primarily intended to serve indoor sports, an external access is also provided for field based activities. A reception area is provided at the main entrance adjacent to a staff office and this will allow for future use outside of school hours
Other provision in the ancillary space includes a dance studio and a weights/multi-gym room to replace the existing facilities in the existing technology building. Staff changing, DDA accessible shower / WC and a sports classroom completes the ancillary provision.
