Ramsgate Arts Primary School is a new two-form entry primary school, which provides state-of-the-art facilities for up to 420 children to support its focus on the arts.
Part of Viking Academy Trust, Ramsgate Arts Primary is a new free school which offers an exciting curriculum with an emphasis on the arts. Built off-site by principal contractor The McAvoy Group, this bright, modern and spacious building was funded by the Education & Skills Funding Agency. It has created an exemplar learning environment for children from reception to age 11.
Designed by the Bluesky architectural team, the new facility reflects the school’s vision for the arts and will be a valuable community resource. It has a dance studio, general classrooms, main hall, spacious staff room, offices, kitchen, small group rooms for special educational needs, and multi-functional open learning areas.
Chris Russell, Managing Director of Blue Sky Design Services is proud of the close partnership working across the Principal contractor and design team;
‘BlueSky have worked on 26 off-site construction school projects with The McAvoy Group to date. Working with the end users to understand their requirements is a key part of our role in the project delivery team. Effective use of BIM is core to how both the architectural and construction teams ensured that all aspects of the design were coordinated efficiently and kept pace with this rapid programme. ‘
