A Design That Works

From the very earliest stages of the design work, the school and design team were clear about what we needed: a comfortable, spacious dining room that makes eating a meaningful social activity, a Chapel that reflects the spirituality of our core purpose, a permanent theatre and dance studio that are purpose built and a fully equipped gymnasium that meets the rigour of gymnastics. This was in addition to traditional classroom settings with modern technology to facilitate the greatest breadth of learning opportunities.

All of these needs and more have been met in an inspired design that spans three blocks linked with glazed corridors. Our new school enjoys eight fully equipped science laboratories, a sports hall with permanent display equipment, two fully featured learning resource centres and everything is positioned logically for easy navigation and minimal transit times to reduce lost teaching in transition between lessons.
