After other options had been considered it was decided to rebuild the school on its original site. The new building is single storey with two wings, at ninety degrees to each other, organised around a cloistered courtyard and a playground to the south. The classrooms line the edge of the playground, to which they have direct access. A deep roof overhang provides a sheltered play space and solar shading.   Key Stages 1 and 2 share small learning spaces with direct access to gardens at the rear. 

The reception class and nursery spaces can be joined together and both spaces benefit from the dual aspect of the south facing large playground and the smaller reception playground to the south east.
