The Lord Mayor’s Design Awards recognise the best contributions in the previous year across Newcastle, in the fields of architecture and environmental design.
The school fought off tough competition from across the city. The organisers of the award commented:
“The Lord Mayor was particularly impressed with the investment in the education of the city’s children demonstrated by this scheme. The combination of works to the existing school and the addition of the exciting new building has created a new learning environment whilst maintaining a historic link with the school’s past.”
