Exemplar designs

The Exemplar Designs are examples of high quality primary and secondary school designs by 11 leading architectural firms who have created some of the country’s best modern buildings. Demonstrating the Government’s aspirations for 21st century schools, the designs will help LEAs and schools to develop their educational vision, encouraging people to think about what they want from a school building, and how design can be used to develop their plans for education delivery. As benchmarks of quality, they will drive consistently high standards across all LEAs.

Available for use by all those involved or seeking to be involved in school building projects, the Exemplar Designs will help to inform the design and building process.
