Amesbury Archer Primary School
A contemporary model school on a Bronze Age site
Amesbury Archer School is located on the site of one of the most significant Bronze Age burial sites ever found in the UK. Following thorough archaeological work during the construction of the school, the remains and artefacts of the “Amesbury Archer” were discovered, after whom the school is named.
The school is based on our standard S106 model design developed to fulfil section 106 agreements on residential developments in conduction with Persimmon Homes. When the first phase was completed the school was the fifth in our series of model schools.
Phase 1 provided seven classrooms in one wing and included a hall and central core to support a full 2 form entry school. It was subsequently extended to provide a further seven classrooms to complete the school.
Working and learning in a school that is designed to let in the maximum of natural light, provides effective use of space, and that also suits the needs of modern education is a pleasure.
