About The Project

This £30 million project involved the design and construction of three schools in the London Borough of Enfield, including facilities for pupils with physical and multiple learning difficulties. The project comprises three schools: Lea Valley High School; Starks Field Primary and Tottenhall Infant School. Each school has been individually designed to blend into its existing landscape.

Summary

Lea Valley High School and Tottenhall Infant School have been reconstructed in two phases on the sites of the existing schools, while Starks Field Primary School has been built on open land. Lea Valley, located next to extensive green open spaces, took the form of a two storey square building with a large internal courtyard. As well as new build there was also the refurbishment of retained buildings which in total accommodate 1,200 secondary plus 250 sixth form pupils.

Starks Field Primary School provides facilities for 420 primary pupils, 30 nursery pupils and a neighbourhood nursery facility providing a further 50 places. It is a one-storey predominantly cedar clad building and provides multi sports hard courts and a five-a-side football pitch. Tottenhall, located in the heart of a residential area is a 1.5 storey traditional build, providing 270 infant places and 45 nursery places.

The concession will run for 27 years from financial close, ending on 31 August 2029. Following construction completion in July/August 2005, the project is now approaching its eighth year of operation, providing accommodation to nearly 1500 secondary pupils and to over 700 infant and primary pupils each year.
