Central Coast Grammar Junior School

Student-centred learning environments

Scroll down

The new K to 6 junior school facility at Central Coast Grammar School has accelerated the school’s capacity to deliver the next generation education which has been at the heart of its strategic plan.

Designed with the principle of student and staff wellbeing in mind, learning environments were developed centred on students rather than classrooms. Adaptable furniture and learning spaces give teachers the flexibility to facilitate individual focus, group projects and grade workshops according to different learning intentions and learning styles.

As part of a large educational campus, the need for distinction, easy navigation and the creation of a sense of belonging were key to the design. To this effect, three buildings corresponding to different year groups (K-2, 3-4 and 5-6) were constructed with flexible learning spaces that flow into seven neighbourhoods, seamlessly transitioning onto landscape gardens and terraces.

The playful concept of the Treehouse formed the overarching conceptual framework, bringing to life a narrative of exploration, creativity, challenge and a connection to nature. Sensitive terracing which follows the natural ground fall, both for building and landscape, allow for friendships to flourish in separate, secure and age-appropriate outdoor play zones for each year level.

Each of the facility’s thirty light filled learning spaces is fitted with cutting edge technological enhancements to individualise learning and connect students in exciting and absorbing real world scenarios.
