Skinners’ Academy

RSS were appointed by Skinners’ Academy Hackney to deliver an expansion project to provide additional space for a 250 place sixth form. The scheme involved two infill extensions cleverly integrated into the existing school: one was a three-storey infill to the western end of the school to provide additional classrooms and relocation of the Inclusion Zone. The other, a roof extension located on an existing underused roof terrace to provide dedicated sixth form social and study areas. We also remodelled a number of existing classrooms to provide additional science labs and prep areas, and improved the existing science facilities.

The project also involved re-landscaping of soft areas in order to address ground condition issues providing usable space for the School’s growing population.

"The contemporary feel to the sixth form area with its vast, open space provides the ideal environment for both study and socialising."
