BAM completes new North Brent secondary school in North West London

BAM has completed the design and construction of a new five-form entry secondary school in North West London. 


North Brent School, part of the Wembley Multi-Academy Trust, will provide 1,150 places for pupils in years 7 to 13, in a new state-of-the-art, sustainable school building, with an interlinked sixth form block.

The new five-storey school building provides spacious modern classrooms, equipped with the latest technology. The design maximises the limited space available on a constrained urban site, to provide a pupil-focused learning environment.

Ewen Hunter, Construction Director at BAM, said:

“We are delighted to have completed the design and construction of the new North Brent School on behalf of the Department for Education, and the Wembley Multi-Academy Trust. The school’s relocation to this exciting new facility will provide the pupils and staff with a modern and sustainable new learning space.”

“This project adds to our portfolio of successful education schemes, both in London and across the UK and Ireland and we’re proud to have played our part in creating a learning environment that will inspire pupils for many years to come.”

Learning facilities also include science laboratories, a library, a sports hall, main hall and sixth form common room. The roof of the sixth-form block houses a multi-use games area (MUGA), optimising the space available on site.

BAM was appointed to deliver the scheme by the Department for Education (DfE) under its National Education Framework. BAM has been on the Department for Education’s five recent frameworks, beginning in 2009 and during this time has created more than 90,000 pupil places and 675,000m2 of education facilities.

The building was designed with bright cladding and an articulated façade to create an inspiring learning environment. The school’s entrance is marked by a distinctive weeping willow tree, which was retained on site with the school layout designed around it. Rooftop solar panels contribute to the school’s green energy.
