Current development projects
Thanks to the support of current parents in recent years, King Alfred’s new Tree House plans are well underway. Last year, the concept for the Treehouse, designed by XUL Architecture, was approved with feedback and contribution from parents, staff and students. Old Alfredian, Anthony Meacock (OA 2015) from the architecture collective ‘Assemble’ has come on board as the principle contractor. Assemble will work with students and staff to complete key phases of the project, a community led build with education being at the forefront.
Two Choice sessions per week will make the project cross-curricular in its engagement of pupils. Given the unique nature of the project, it will take longer than ‘off the shelf’ play equipment, but will leave us with a unique new play structure that will serve us for many years to come. During the recent March Choice sessions, students from Years 10-13 have been working with Stephen Debrett and Old Alfredian Anthony to measure the trees and plan the layout of the trunks. These trees will provide the structural support for the treehouse and they will enable a sturdy build with room for expansion in future.
