In the architecture room AOC architects have successfully entered a card model by Tom Coward and Vincent Lacovara showing a dramatic change to western elevation of Charles Dickens Primary School bearing the school's "We Have Great Expectations" motto.

The school has already seen changes to its entrance and playground. Earlier this year a garden was opened alongside the now closed section of Lant Street next to the school.
