Situated within the suburban area of Mill Hill in the London Borough of Barnet, the Orion Primary School forms part of the Goldstar Federation of Schools.

Orion Primary School was a new two storey, four-form of entry primary school. At full capacity, the school can provide space for up to 1100 pupils, 52 nursery places and a specialist Autistic Spectrum Condition Unit for up to 21 pupils.

As an additional feature, Orion Primary School contains the Goldstar Centre. This community centre holds a professional theatre, recording studios and sports areas. An all-weather floodlit pitch and various game areas combine to create the outdoor sports facilities which are shared with the local Goldbeaters School and can also be accessed by the public.

The design of the school focused on efficiency. Planning allowed for enhanced features including excellent daylight and a mixed mode ventilation strategy. By utilising a concrete frame in the building’s construction, night-time cooling of the exposed soffits’ thermal mass was enabled.

The completed scheme provides a contemporary and comfortable environment for all of the school’s staff and pupils.
