The Ladder School
A new building was required to create a much improved learning environment for new and exisiting students of The Ladder School.
Design development of The Ladder school focused on the layout of the buildings and was informed by the social and behavioural needs of the students. The site posed challenging existing levels and tight constraints for the education facility. Robust fabric performance and complex security provisions were achieved within the Department for Education PSB framework.
Unanimous planning consent was granted at committee.
The school will be built on a town centre brownfield site, previously a local mill which burned down in 2007.
Working with Interserve Construction, the £8m project will start on site early in 2021.
