Kemball SEN School, Stoke on Trent

We were the concept designers and lead architects on site for this 6,200 square metre new build. The special educational needs (SEN) school was built under the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme.

Kemball specialises in the education of children with a range of complex cognitive needs from ‘severe’ to ‘profound and multiple learning difficulties’ (SLD/PMLD), and Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The building is designed to accommodate 140 students between the ages of three and 19 and will be co-located with the new mainstream Ormiston Academy as part of an overall campus masterplan to promote positive inclusion and partnership.
