Bow School

About the Phoenix School build

To accommodate the school’s increase in size, it is moving site twice in the next two years. Familiarity with physical surroundings is very important to the school’s students, many of whom are non-verbal and highly sensory. Therefore staff were very keen that there is something recognisable and inspiring at the new site: an innovative shelter designed by the students themselves in their final summer term at the old school site, and built by them at the start of the autumn term on the new school site.
