Tiger Primary School is situated to the east of New Line Learning Academy, a project that PLACE completed in 2011 with Jestico + Whiles. The primary school was originally located within the Academy building, acting as a feeder school for the Academy. As numbers increased, a separate building became necessary, leading to the commissioning of a new school building and landscape.

The grounds reflect the age groups of the students, enabling staff to open the classrooms and extend learning into the external environment. Ancient woodland situated next to the school provides an excellent opportunity for the students to connect with nature and was a key feature in the implementation of the landscape design.

Despite having a limited budget, the design was able to respond to the schools brief, delivering an exciting environment for students to learn and play in.
