Bishop Road


Bishop Road Primary is a highly successful school, and needed to expand from 720 to 840 places due to its popularity – or to accommodate four extra classrooms.


By building a new library and administration facility at the front of the school, this enabled us to release sufficient space for the 4 extra classrooms to be accommodated within the existing school buildings.


The modern clean lines of the whole library element hover over a stone and glass base, creating a  light, open and welcoming new entrance.  The overall look gives the school a ‘street presence’, signifying the more accessible and all-embracing role that the school has within the community.
