Well done Collective, and also to RIAS for organising a much streamlined procurement process. 2 A4s only for the initial bid, then a shortlisting of 6 to produce a concept proposal. Then award. Great to see a site specific response to a school, for a change too.

Congratulations. A pleasantly modest, humanly-scaled and legible building design, reminiscent of the 70s work of Aldington & Craig.
