This uniquely urban multi-storey school accommodates 800 students from kindergarten to Year 6. Set in a dense suburb of Sydney, the new school comprises 30 new home bases, a large multi-level library, state-of-the-art collaborative learning spaces, shared educational facilities, open play spaces, multipurpose hall/auditorium and landscaped, rooftop playgrounds and basketball court.

Set into a steep sloping site, the school is made up of a series of terraces that allow for an influx of natural light and cross ventilation into learning spaces. The terraced design means flexible learning spaces offer strong connections between indoor and outdoor with each rooftop also becoming gardens or play spaces and walkways, encouraging a healthy lifestyle for pupils.
