Hounslow Town Primary School gets creative with Countryside drawing competition


A drawing competition has taken place at Hounslow Town Primary School to determine the artwork which will be featured on the construction hoarding for the next phase of The Assembly, Countryside’s £52m regeneration scheme in Hounslow.

Schoolchildren from Years 1 to 6 were tasked with drawing a home of the future, with numerous imaginative designs received, and a winner chosen by Countryside from each year group. The winners, Brescia, Ayra, Rugile, Nikola, Vedanth and Pranav, will have their designs displayed on the next phase of construction hoarding and also received a £10 book token, which was presented in a special assembly at the school. 

Hounslow Town Primary School was officially opened earlier this year, following a £20m redevelopment by Countryside, one of the UK’s leading homebuilders.

The newly expanded five-form-entry primary school has capacity for 1,200 pupils and provides contemporary sports and play facilities. It is part of a £52m regeneration scheme known as The Assembly that is also providing 284 new mixed-tenure homes on the 2.67 hectare site of which almost 50% are affordable.

Construction of the school started in June 2017 along with the first phase of 50 new homes constructed by Countryside. 

Mike Woolliscroft, Managing Director, Partnerships South (West), Countryside, said: “It was great to see so many unique and creative entries into our drawing competition with Hounslow Town Primary School. Built as part of The Assembly regeneration scheme, it is really important for us to continue cultivating the strong bond between Hounslow Town Primary School and Countryside. Incorporating the pupils’ artwork into the next phase of construction hoarding is a great example of how we can achieve this, as well as engaging the school pupils with the regeneration that is taking place in their community.”
