We are absolutely thrilled that we have now broken ground for the new Orchard House SEND Secondary School! It’s an extremely exciting project to be working on with a wonderful team making it all happen!

We are pleased to be working alongside ISG designing and delivering this exceptional new SEND School for Manchester City Council and the people of Miles Platting.

The Prospere Educational Trust has been chosen to run the school and we have worked very closely over various workshops to ensure that the teaching methodologies and aspirations are met through the design of the building and its facilities provision.

The school must be delivered in compliance with the Manchester Low Carbon Build Standard and with extensive social, local and economic benefits achieved for local communities. As part of the scope, there is a requirement to re-mediate the contaminated ground and existing mine-workings. This also applies to a neighbouring site (Nelson Street), which is to be left as vacant plot upon completion.

Arranged over a single storey, the new purpose-built school is targeting BREEAM Excellent!
