Everyone’s Future Counts

TMTS Site Story

The Michael Tippett School moved into its new home on 25 February, 2008. The school was both the first school in London and the first special education needs school in the country to be completely rebuilt under the Building Schools for the Future programme.

Designed by London Eye architects, Marks Barfield and built by Apollo Education, the new building is an example of the latest thought in SEN building design.

The school has been designed to provide 80 school places and to increase the range of opportunities for its students. The dynamic environment features modern hydrotherapy facilities, a sensory room, a therapeutic colour strategy, which is appropriate to the needs of the students and an eco friendly green roof. The striking architecture makes a bold statement within the local community and facilitates the extended school policy which is a part of the BSF programme.

The building is a demonstration of how working in partnership can ensure that a challenging project will be delivered on programme, budget and quality.
