The first of the DfES Exemplar Schools to be built as a city academy 

After developing an exemplary secondary school design for the DfES in 2003, Wilkinson Eyre’s team have now been appointed to design the new John Madejski Academy in South Reading using the same modular scheme. The objective of the exemplar design exercise was to offer an architecture that supports innovative learning and teaching methods as well as providing a stimulating and fun built environment, adopting best practice from schools and other building types. At Reading, as in the exemplar design, the team has taken a kit-of-parts approach, separating generic teaching spaces from areas with more specialist technical requirements.
