Judith Kerr Primary School

Judith Kerr Primary School is the UK’s first state funded English-German bilingual school, a point hammered home in its mission statement: “bilingual education for everyone”.

First opening its doors in 2013, its namesake and patron is the much loved Anglo-German children’s book author of ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’. It aims to reach a full capacity of 350 before the end of the decade.

Gleeds provided technical advisor services for the refurbishment of a former 1960’s university laboratory. Due to the historical use of the building, an onsite radioactive laboratory required decommissioning in a live school environment, and the work was carried out in seven phases over 18 months to minimise risk to students and impact on the operation of the school.
