Revitalises an existing 1970's school, on a sloping site, comprising separate building blocks on different levels. Central to the scheme is a physical and visual connection between new build and the existing school. This is a achieved through a new 2 storey social heart overlooked by the main school hall, LRC, ICT suites and Sixth Form social space. Central to the space is a curved chapel.
Large parts of the existing buildings have been re-modelled and re-clad to form modern learning spaces which, together with the newbuild elements form a seamless series of buildings and the impression of a totally new school.
Careful consideration of DDA requirements has been achieved, providing appropriate access to all new and retained buildings on a total of 6 separate ground floor levels.
