The project will include new Primary, Secondary and 6th Form buildings, as well as a new central heartspace, sports hall and library.
New facilities – such as classrooms, dining halls and a main hall – will provide areas to facilitate learning and engagement between both students and teachers alike. In addition to the educational spaces, the plans are to include extra-curricular places of learning and socialising – such as bespoke ICT facilities with new technology, 4 outdoor courts (including an all-weather pitch) and a café.
The existing building is to be fully refurbished with the operational accommodation and appliance bays being retained at ground floor level.
Factory 2050 is the UK’s first fully reconfigurable assembly and component manufacturing facility for collaborative research.
