West Thornton Primary Academy is a 2 Form Entry primary school catering for up to 420 pupils. The classrooms at the academy have been deliberately oversized to cater for the unique learning environments that the client utilises.
The academy goes away from the traditional desks and chairs approach in favour of having a more flexible, open learning environment, giving pupils the opportunity to learn where they feel best.
The internal teaching facilities has been arranged over three floors to both provide the optimum internal teaching environments whilst maximising the extent of external space available for play.
