St Peter’s Primary School. Pilning

Shaun Prichard was the Project Architect for St Peter’s Primary School whilst working for B3 Architects. A new single form entry village school for 210 pupils aged between 4 and 11 years old village school which draws children from Pilning and Severn Beachas well as the surrounding rural area.


The school embraces the existing landscape and dissolves the boundaries between indoor and outdoor space. It has strong links with its parish church and believes that it is privileged to have a modern, new school in which to teach and learn in lovely rural surroundings. The building and grounds are designed as an environment in which adults and children work together to develop and broaden their learning. Children are encouraged to develop a reflective spirituality which will give them the resilience to face the challenges ahead. (Photographs kindly endorsed by B3 Architects.)
