The new Girls’ Primary School is located on the prominent Shore Road frontage of the Saint Kentigern campus, providing a strong presence and place of arrival for the school.  The design is underpinned by the principle of using architecture to better promote positive learning. A series of curated spaces provide for formative development; areas for social engagement with peers, places of retreat, opportunities for physical and creative freedom; and functional teaching spaces. 

The site is complex and steeply sloped, challenges that the spatial planning has embraced and converted into opportunities. 

The primary organising element is an atrium with a multi-use social stair – the ‘heart’ of the school - providing physical, visual, and social connections across all levels. 

A series of offset levels step up the landscape, softening its position within the surrounding environment and providing space for outdoor learning opportunities – a key requirement of the brief.
