St Silas CofE Primary School

St Silas CE Primary School - courtyard


Architect: Capita Symonds Archtiecture
Client: Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council
Photpgrapher: Nick Gutteridge

If buildings were judged on the smiles of the client, occupants and design team alone this wonderful school would win every prize imaginable. Clad in a glass coat of many but subtle colours the school is a beacon and a thing of wonder to its young users.

An utter joy to visit this spirited and colourful new intervention in the midst of Blackburn’s terraces, allows views in through its windows, doors and playgrounds to embrace and welcome the children and parents of its surrounding community.

As seen on every wall from the library to the canteen, the building perfectly symbolises to the outside world the energy and commitment of the staff, pupils and Headmistress of this lovely school.
