New Road Primary extension gets planning permission

rhp has achieved planning permission for a new extension to New Road Primary School in Cambridge.

The extension will expand the existing school (space for a total of 420 pupils) and provide a welcoming school presence fronting the public highway.

rhp has created a design for Cambridge County Council that is simple and efficient with clear legibility and wayfinding, and new teaching spaces benefitting from generous natural daylight.

In addition to these teaching areas, the extension will also provide a host of other spaces which support the main teaching function of the building, including:

New purpose-built nursery

  • Simple and clear circulation routes
  • Good connections to external social and learning spaces
  • Ample and practical support hubs
  • New all-weather games court with increased play areas
