The expansion of Iveson Primary School for Leeds City Council has transformed the school's facilities and increased capacity by an additional 105 pupils.
The internal expansion project was procured under the YORbuild Framework and included converting a hall into two spacious bespoke classrooms and transforming an existing IT suite into a new third classroom. Other new contemporary spaces include two new library spaces and added IT 'open' areas, along with a new kitchen and dining room.
The staff, children and parents are delighted with the transformation of Iveson, we now have a beautiful school, truly fit for purpose with two fantastic libraries putting reading at the very heart of our school. The team worked very effectively with us, were highly professional and considerate of the needs of an operating school meaning there was no disruption to learning.

Participating in school charitable activities
All the works were completed during school term-time so constant communicaiton with staff and students ensured they were kept updated about upcoming works. Our site team engaged in school activities throughout the project, including an assembly where the children met the site team, and sponsoring special Remembrance Day t-shirts presented to children who had designed Remembrance Day artwork. We also worked with YORbuild to fund a zen garden in an unused area which we designed and revitalised with subcontractor S&D Landscapes, creating a relaxing space for staff and students to enjoy.
The full transformation included:
- A new classroom
- Two new library spaces
- IT 'open' areas
- Intervention Rooms
- A Board Game Lending Library
- A Brand-new kitchen
- Enlarged dining room and staffroom
- More car parking facilities and disabled access
