The building has 10 classrooms and is run by staff at Newfield Specialist School. It offers a number of new places for pupils with autism and incorporates the existing pupils that are already at the school.​

Robertson delivered a special programme of community engagement for this project. We arranged site visits that suited the varying needs of all pupils so that they could take part in the Robertson Reporters initiative, publish their artwork and construction progress updates in a newsletter.

We also took part in a 4D sensory session, using video projection of the site, construction materials and other resources to enrich their learning. This was an important part of involving them in the process of getting a new school.
