Eastchurch C of E Primary School St Clement

Isle of Sheppey

This new 1FE Junior School has now opened on the Isle of Sheppey. The school is designed to achieve BREEAM ‘very good’, incorporating PV solar panels, wind catchers, and other ecological features.

The design of the building is inspired by the key role played by this area in the history of aviation, including the location of the first manufactured aircraft in 1908, the first purpose built airfield in 1909, and where Winston Churchill learnt to fly.

“This will be a great school for Sheppey. The architects have been working hard to design an outstanding building, with green technology and better use of natural light” - Kent County Council Education Chief, Cllr Sarah Hohler
