Thorney Island Primary School completes

Buxton celebrated the official opening of the new school hall at Thorney Island Primary School with the Commander of Baker Barracks


As part of the project for West Sussex County Council, Buxton has carried out the strip and refurbishment of the existing Main Hall and the construction of an extension, including forming a new corridor across the end of the hall to link the two halves of the school and four PE equipment/general storerooms.

The heating in the hall has been replaced and a new Audio Visual projector system installed complete with a surround sound speaker system. Externally the existing running track has been replaced and a new Flexipave (which uses recycled car tyres) soft surface has been laid, which is also permeable to aid surface water drainage.


All external finishes were chosen to be maintenance-free wherever possible, especially as the site is close to the coast and subject to extreme weather conditions.

The school is unique in that it is on the site of a British Army barracks located on Thorney Island around 7 miles east from Portsmouth, Hampshire.
