The Loddon School
The Loddon School is an independent residential school, providing year-round education and care for children who have complex learning difficulties and who can no longer live at home due to their exceptional support needs.
The school estate comprises a mix of buildings developed over time between the 1860s and 1930s, with more recent purpose-built buildings; providing homes, education, leisure, play, outings and holidays for some 28 children and staff members.
The Loddon School is rated Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ and the delivery of new purpose-built homes for its students is a core part of its strategy to provide the very best environment for both learning and care for the young people it serves.
PMc was appointed to develop an Estates Strategy in the Spring of 2018, this was completed and approved by the Board of Trustees in September 2018. The Strategy provides a long-term estates route map to meet the school’s strategic estate needs and bring all of the school’s pupil-focused accommodation onto the main site and out of the Main House into purpose-built homes. Following the adoption of the Strategy, PMc have worked with the School to complete Phase 1 of the Strategy – Forest Oak, and to complete Phase 2 – Maple Grove in 2023/24.
