SMC Alsop wins competition for Michael Faraday Community Primary School 

SMC Alsop has won an international competition to design the Michael Faraday Primary School - the first school to be transformed under the Southwark schools for the future programme and the beginning of the Aylesbury estate regeneration. This is part of the borough's vision - Southwark 2016 - to transform Southwark into a place where families want to live, work and learn. The announcement was made at a recent press event on the Aylesbury estate. It emphasised the key role that education will play in building a safe and peaceful community. The project will extend primary school provision and provide adult learning opportunities for the neighbourhood. The new Michael Faraday community school will replace the existing cramped and inflexible 1970s buildings located at the centre of the Aylesbury estate. It will give pupils and staff a teaching and learning environment worthy of the 21st century, as well as providing learning facilities for adults. As housing in the area will double, the school will expand to cater for the increase in children and their families.
