Ok so this isn’t strictly a school, but I’m sure we’re all agreed that you can learn in a library. And what a library! This library includes a creativity room with culinary equipment, a playroom and a teen space amongst other fantastic facilities.

This bright and airy primary school uses bright colours and a range of shapes and spaces. With inspiration drawn from JR Tolkien’s The Hobbit, and design ideas taken from student feedback, this space is both welcoming and hugely functional.
