The landscape design comprises a rich mix of urban style courtyard spaces, informal landscape areas and ecological/flood mitigation areas. At the heart of the school are predominantly hard landscape spaces providing flexible areas for outdoor teaching, gatherings and events, and which are also available for use by the surrounding community. Surrounding the main teaching and administrative blocks is a softer, picturesque landscape providing areas for informal seating, play, recreation and sports. Susceptible to flooding, the scheme also includes flood mitigation techniques that have also been used to increase biodiversity.
