The practice has designed two- and three-storey buildings accommodating a performing arts block, sports hall, specialist teaching facilities and three main teaching blocks for this significantly scaled new secondary school. Open space connects the main hall with the performing arts segment and acts as a forecourt for local people who use the school's public facilities. The school has strong community links and provides learning programmes and a range of other public services. The buildings are
naturally ventilated, with high levels of natural daylight and a BREEAM 'Very Good' rating. The design brief was developed in consultation with students and staff, who were also closely involved in monitoring progress on site.
