The 67 metre long footbridge provides a unifying link for pupils over a busy road between the original school and the 1960’s school building to the north. The footbridge curves past the trees in the school grounds and climbs to rise above the traffic. At the centre the footbridge opens into an elevated viewing gallery with seats adjacent to oriel windows.
