Cayley Primary School

This expansion project increased Cayley Primary School in Limehouse, East London from a two to a three form entry school.

It includes a 1,900sqm, four storey extension with a new main entrance, eight classrooms, dining hall, kitchen, toilets and staff rooms together with a new nursery classroom and rationalisation of the early years playground. The new building has floor to ceiling windows and is wrapped in bronze coloured panels with a decorative mesh which provides solar shading.

Procured through the IESE framework with Morgan Sindall, the works were carried out whilst the school was in operation and were delivered in phases.

“Not only does the Cayley Primary School design stand out in the landscape of traditional brick pre-war structures; it stands out in the community as a usable building for future generations.”
