New Schools 2021 – Ramlegh Park Primary School

Ramlegh Park Primary School is a new P–6 school for families in the fast growing area of Clyde North. The school offers two learning neighbourhoods, an administration building, outdoor play courts, performing arts and physical education building community hub, as well as sports fields. 

Incorporating biophilic design principles, the buildings are designed to maximise opportunities for students to connect with nature and support nature-based learning.

Extended eaves provide valuable sheltered areas and incorporate outdoor learning spaces that provide teachers and students with increased opportunities to customise teaching and learning to suit student needs.

To meet the needs of contemporary learners, the school is structured as a two learning neighbourhood model, comprised of learning communities and home bases.

In addition to the two learning neighbourhoods, a resource intensive learning hub enables cross curricula connections to be made between science, art, design, and food technology in collaborative learning spaces collocated with the school’s library. By placing the school's administration spaces close to the library and the hub, the school’s leadership team are close to this buzzing centre of activity, giving them multiple opportunities during their day to connect with the children and their learning experiences.

We have embedded biophilic concepts into both the buildings and landscape to support enhanced cognitive function and improved learning outcomes for the students.

Flexibility is a key feature of our response to the school’s education strategy; we have created modifiable spaces that accommodate multiple learning approaches and can respond to the requirements of students and teachers, creating a sense of shared ownership, inclusion, and everyday learning. This flexibility also enables groups to be formed between communities based on each student’s stage rather than their age.
