Luxborough Lane School

Sharps Redmore are pleased to have provided acoustic services through the design and construction stages of a new purpose built school for the National Autistic Society at Chigwell, on the former training ground site of Tottenham Hotspur.

The school is designed to provide learning and support for more than 120 children and young adults from 4-25 years old with a diagnosis of autism. The scheme was provided for the NAS by the Anderson Foundation, the charitable arm of the Anderson Group.

The acoustic challenge was to provide spaces which can work acoustically for the children, meeting higher standards than typical schools, alongside the specific needs that autism brings and providing a suitable balance across the teaching spaces.
