This 1,300-pupil secondary school is one of the first wave of City Academies specialising in business and practical vocational subjects. The three-storey building is organised around full-height top-lit atria for teaching, dining and foyer functions. Classrooms are arranged primarily along the two long elevations to benefit from daylight and external views while vibrant internal colour schemes aid identification and orientation. In addition to the new building, the project refurbished the original Grade II listed school, incorporating internal and external sporting facilities. When the school opened, Education Minister Andrew Adonis described it as "one of the best Academies I've seen."
