Oakgrove Primary School

Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire

Oakgrove is a vibrant and growing community, and the Primary School will form a key part of it. An excellent school should be one that has a really firm bedding and lies at the heart of the community. This masterplan study looks at how the Primary School at Oakgrove can complement the existing retail, commercial and community buildings within the Neighbourhood Centre.

The school building is set back within its own landscaped square – accommodating parking and drop-off. The main facade defines the square and provides a secure yet welcoming entrance.
