Shorefields School caters for children with complex learning and physical difficulties, including autism.
The design includes two new wings at either end of the building to provide a nursery area, a music and drama area, and classrooms. Other areas of the school will be remodelled, including the existing entrance and administration area, classrooms and the previously redundant first floor, which will accommodate a training area and additional offices.
There will be two new lifts to improve access for physically impaired students and improvements will be made to corridors to create lighter spaces. Additional car parking has been included in the landscape designs along with external play areas.
