Western Community Primary School
North Tyneside

Western Community caters for 420 pupils plus 26 nursery places. The strong linear street frontage acts as the public face of the building, expressing the different volumes of the internal spaces within. This serves as a buffer from the busy road, sheltering the central hub and the teaching spokes, whilst providing a contrast to the curved core of the building. The core, as the hub of the school, provides an innovative teaching and learning space beneath a double height glulam roof, from which access to the teaching and related facilities can be gained. This hub forms the heart of the school. It is multi-functional, used for assembly, presentation, performance and it is a key focus to the school, providing centralised facilities of computing, art and the learning resource centre.
