Eleanor Smith SEMH Schools

Eleanor Smith School is an all through special educational need school based on two sites in the London Borough of Newham. The school caters for children and young people with social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH) and the project encompasses an extension and improvement of the existing primary school in Plaistow with a brand new secondary school on a brownfield site in East Ham. The new buildings will be constructed in cross laminated timber (CLT), providing generous, flexible classrooms and specialist teaching resource areas, calming spaces and break-out spaces to the extensive, external landscape.
