A new building, together with internal remodelling works support a one form entry expansion and increased sixth form numbers. Wrapping around the corner of an existing teaching block the new building form generates a courtyard and the opportunity to create vibrant outdoor social spaces in a previously under used corner of the site.
Carefully nestled within extensive mature landscaping the design is clearly contemporary and embraces the principles of sustainable design employing a green roof, mixed mode ventilation strategy, high thermal mass and precisely engineered daylighting provision.
New accommodation includes five classrooms and a central learning hub incorporating a new library and sixth form study centre.
