Creating a New School



This programme charts the creation of the Hadley Learning Community, a new PFI scheme state-of-the-art extended school.

The school is designed to provide 21st Century learning environments for a deprived area of Telford, in rural Shropshire. The programme follows the school's principal as she makes crucial design decisions about how the school should be built.

The school will include a 1,200 place secondary school, a 420 place primary school and a special school. Community facilities on the site include a nursery, a children's centre, a theatre and a public swimming pool.

An entire staff has been recruited and an innovative cross phase curriculum has been developed for this blueprint for the 'Building Schools for the Future' scheme.
