FIR VALE & SHIRECLIFFE PRIMARY SCHOOLS Location: Sheffield Client: Sheffield County Council (Oasis) Two £5m primary schools for Sheffield City Council, situated on challenging sites. Design of the schools was in close liaison with SCC Education Department, looking at how each site could be optimized for external learning and social opportunities. At Fir Vale, the school sits on the former Skinnerthorpe Road, adjacent to the existing Fir Vale Secondary school. The linear nature of the site, combined with restrictions including flood alleviation and easements to services and culverts has been worked with to provide a series of external spaces of varying character to suit all. In Shirecliffe, the site of a former nursery, the steeply sloping site required some re-modelling in order to provide safe, user friendly play and service areas, whilst incorporating a series of routes and play / learning spaces into the exciting ecologically rich environment.
