Alexandra Park School Sixth Form Video

Our Education project spotlight continues with a fly around of this new sixth form building at Alexandra Park School in Haringey, London. Construction is due to start on site this summer and we’re really excited to see this one rise up from the ground. 

Obtaining planning was a challenge on an extremely constrained site located in the designated Metropolitan Open Land (MOL). Thinking Buildings worked successfully with Miriam Owen at Edgars to justify to the planning department that the benefits of expanding the school outweighed any potential harm. This was a really good example of setting out a clear planning strategy and engaging with the planning authority to gain support. 

The scheme provides seminar rooms, study spaces, and a large social area with access to a covered social space, and is expected to be completed for use by the school for September 2025. The planning approval included a roof terrace to maximise outdoor amenity space. 

The contractor is Alcema Limited and we are working together to finalise the technical design ready for the start on site. Other consultants include CBG Consultants Ltd providing mechanical & electrical, Cole Easdon highways and Jackson Purdue Lever as structural and civil engineers.
