A wonderfully warm and inviting design-inspiring environment for children and teachers. Great to see that some Welsh educational stakeholders and sponsors are prepared to embrace the new.

Saw this school last year when in Brecon and we were very impressed with its design. I am sure the children who attend it consider themselves lucky to be taught in such a wonderful environment.

The design has the wow factor, reinforcing the continuity from nursery through to the senior classes. Inclusivity is further enhanced with the classroom corridors looking inwards towards the circular courtyard and circular hall. Breathtaking simplicity and a brilliant achievement!!

The project carried out for the Diocese of Swansea and Brecon yielded a well designed School and a warm and friendly atmosphere yet a highly stimulating environment.

I would like to congratulate Petersen Williams Practice on behalf of the many small practices in Wales.

This excellent building demonstrates that good architecture can be carried out by those who dedicate their time, effort and commitment.

The project sends out a message to all those who commission buildings, especially the Local Authorities, that larger practices are not necessarily a prerequisite for a good building. The emphasis on the person not the practice imagery can prove that ‘Small is Beautiful’.

A brilliant and sensitive design – developing the school as a community will bring so many advantages to all.
