Abstract

Hazelwood is a co-educational, inter-denominational school for children and young people aged from 2-19 years with sensory impairment and in some cases associated physical disability. The school capacity provides a maximum of 60 pupils with one to one teaching and support. It is a purpose built school designed to meet the requirements of pupils and is located in a beautiful wooded setting adjacent to Bellahouston Park on the south-west edge of the city of Glasgow. The customised design of the school is the product of collaboration of parents, staff, associated agencies and the architects and design team. The interior of the school has been aimed at maximising independence and providing the optimum learning environment. This ensures a secure and highly stimulating educational experience for all the pupils. The physical location provides a natural and easily accessible range of outdoor activities. The layout of the classrooms enhances a sense of progression through the stages from pre 5 to senior school, where the life skills house is provided to equip them with some degree of independent living. The talk will focus on the process of briefing, designing, constructing and delivering what is a unique school in Scotland.
