Contour Architecture were appointed by Bucks CC in April 2016 to provide full multi-disciplinary services (including costs) to carry out a feasibility study looking at how to accommodate an extra 1 form of entry.

Proposals include providing 2 class bases, together with 2 group rooms, associated WC accommodation and re-working a secondary entrance to the school for KS2 pupils.
