Information


The New Kings Junior School has extended the school and created a new building to provide a modern learning centre comprising; a science laboratory, a design technology workshop, art studio and a learning support room. In addition to this, an extensive library, reception area and an innovative outdoor classroom.

The New Kings Junior School in Chester was built to provide additional learning space and facilities for the pupils to extend and better their learning experience. The school was sustainably designed and built for both quality and endurance, using traditional substructures with a timber frame cedar cladding and plaster board finishes internally. Within the building itself there are many innovative features including stimulating coloured walls, desks and chairs. This has enabled the children to gain a wider learning experience, helping to inspire, encourage and motivate.

The Siberian larch timber clad building also features a green, sedum roof with a rainwater harvesting tank and an air-source heating system – the only gas supply within the school is for the science lab Bunsen Burner.

 

During the build Anwyl Construction organised a Site Safety and Careers day to introduce Kings School pupils from the ages of 6 through to 17 to the Construction Industry. The activities involved classroom based structural challenges, a site tour and presentations, focussing on Health and Safety matters and career prospects and advice on starting a career within the construction industry.
