St Mary’s RC Primary School was at full capacity and needed additional teaching space to accommodate pupils. The proposed annexe would provide additional classroom space for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6, with an extension to the existing primary school to increase office space. The annexe would also allow the school to increase pupil intake, increasing from a 0.5 form to a 1-form entry.
The site team would be working in a live environment, on the grounds of St Mary’s and the neighbouring Malton Community School, so minimising disruption would be paramount.
The Diocese of Middlesbrough procured the project through Scape, The annexe is a two-storey, steel-framed building with pre-case concrete floors on pad foundations. Timber cladding provides a soft, natural aesthetic complemented by grey and black brickwork and a large glazed element.
The site was located on the playing fields of the existing primary school and neighbouring Malton Community School, with extensive collaboration between the Kier site team, stakeholders, the schools, and the Diocese of Middlesbrough, ensuring minimum disruption while works progressed. Access to site was located via a newly-created entrance off Old Malton Road onto the former school field, preventing interface with the school. Once completed, this entrance was removed.
The annexe was completed on time and within budget. The Diocese of Middlesbrough and staff at St Mary’s Primary School were extremely happy with their new building.
In addition, the project received a Considerate Constructors score of 41 out of 50, gaining full marks for the ‘Respect for the Community’ section, which praised the team’s dedication to minimising disruption to the schools and surrounding community, their support for local charities, and enthusiasm for supporting work experience students and York College’s ‘Step Into Construction’ initiative.
