New build Junior School and outdoor play for P1, 2 & 3 pupils.
John Paul II showcases a diverse range of technologies, aesthetically excellent finishes and intricate design – cleverly tying together to provide a high-end facility exuding fun and incentivising learning for its young students – the myriad of bright colours, textured finishes and natural lighting make this a wonderful school for pupils to attend, staff to teach in and parents to send their children to.
Siberian larch cladding graces the external façade and a roof garden cleverly marries into the fabric of the backdrop mountains, providing a focal point for primary 4-7 children in the existing school building; perforated acoustic ceilings and sound absorption brickwork have been introduced in the internal fabric.
