New SEN School in Hackney

Robothams have been working with a charitable school in Hackney to create a brand new school for 120 children, combining a nursery with an SEN school. The new school had received planning consent in 2007 and 2015 however the trustees appointed Robothams to take a fresh look at the design and ensure it accorded with the guidance of BB104.

The Side by Side school will move from its current site on Big Hill near the River Lea to a new site on Arbor Court near Clissold Park. The design consist of accommodation across four floors with external play space at the rear and at roof terrace level.

The project is anticipated on site in 2020.
