This feasibility study evaluates the development options for Peterchurch Primary School in the Golden Valley, rural Herefordshire. It addresses issues relating to suitability and condition of the existing teaching spaces and awkward layout of the school site. In addition to outlining different strategies for the development of the school, central to this study is an exploration of how each of the strategies can support the school’s ethos and enhance its educational objectives.
The school currently has 122 pupils on roll. There is also a nursery located at the school site that is privately owned and run. This feasibility study was commissioned by Herefordshire Council to address issues identified with the condition of the fabric of the school buildings and practicalities of some of the current teaching spaces. The aim of this study is to establish suitable strategies that can provide a modern learning environment for the long-term future of the school.
