We were delighted to get the below recomendation from John Ryan at the Chief Executives Department of Southwark Council;

Wright &Wright had a clear concept from the beginning which grew out of their excellent analysis of the brief and functions. This developed into a clear vision which informed the organisational layout of the scheme and responded exceptionally well to the site. They were very attentive to the input of the client and the school which made it a really good working process within the wider team. Through effective listening combined with passion, excellent design skill and solid technical abilities, Wright& Wright have delivered a school which is indeed unique and able to transform young lives.
