St John’s Marlborough Opening

June 7, 2022

New facilities at St John’s Marlborough were opened last week giving the school much-needed sports and social space. This development completes the school’s rejuvenation in 2007 which left this area of the site ready for further development, but which was affectionately known as “The Somme”. The main impetus of the project was  funding from new housing nearby to which Excalibur Academies Trust increased to enable the construction of a sports hall, 2 games courts, storage building and an outdoor social space.

NVB Architects masterplanned the project and defined the client brief for the sports hall which was delivered by a sports hall specialist contractor, Collinson Construction. The sports hall will allow for greater flexibility of their existing hall addressing in particular the exam season which was impeding the sports curriculum.

NVB Landscape were involved in the planning of the site once the brief for the building was defined to find the best place on the site and maximise the remaining space for outdoor sports and socialising. The site is highly sensitive with a bat roost nearby and being within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to name but a few.

The head teacher, Ian Tucker, opened the project with many kind words for school community, town, design and construction teams.
