The new Countess Gytha Primary School has been completed and will provide new facilities for the school and pupils of Queen Camel. Modern spacious classrooms with integrated IT and plenty of natural light will benefit the pupils, whilst the simple plan allows easy access to external play areas. The hall and kitchen area form part of the ‘community use’ side of the school and an attached Nursery and reception class allow the integration of all the community into one building. The school was delivered with BAM Construction in 44 weeks.

The new pavilion at Dauntsey’s School is now complete.
The pavilion provides the School with much needed changing rooms for their excellent sports facilities and a multi-purpose space, which can accommodate over 200 people, with views of the sports pitches on three sides. There is a large terrace to provide sheltered viewing areas for spectators.
Mark Lascelles, Dauntsey’s School Head Master, said “It is a great credit to our architects that such a large building merges into the landscape so well and it is environmentally friendly too.”
