HCC Property Services were commissioned by Surrey County Council to deliver a special school design to replace an existing tired special school located in Camberley.

The school has provision for a total of 100 pupils some of whom may have additional sensory impairments, physical difficulties or challenging behaviour. 

The special school design was developed with Portesbery staff, who were instrumental in developing the brief and who played a crucial role throughout the process. 

Outdoor play spaces have been considered both individually and collectively catering for children as young as two up to 19 year olds. The landscape offers children tactile and sensory experiences, challenge, privacy, shade, shelter, space to develop essential life skills, and respite for teaching staff, all in a safe and secure, yet stimulating environment. (Photos courtesy of Portesbery School)
