Part-refurbishment, part new-build extension of Haggerston School. Designed by Erno Goldfinger in 1962-7, it is one of the outstanding school buildings of the period and is listed Grade ll.
The original school is composed of assembly block, main teaching block and sports block; these are now supplemented by the new art, design and ICT block. The design approach sought to recover the school's architectural character, create stimulating spaces for learning, and bring the energy performance of the building to modern standards. Architectural intervention and the use of colour brought a sense of natural wayfinding to the building.
The new art, design and ICT block is planned around a central open teaching space (The Forum), and linked to a main teaching block by a new canopied walkway.
