The delivered landscape provides the focus for this new, all-through academy made up of a nursery, a three-form-entry primary school; a six-form-entry secondary school; and a sixth form of up to 300 pupils. It successfully gels the old school buildings with the exciting contemporary architectural insertions.
The internal courtyards convey the quality of a University Quad, whilst the outer spaces combine a natural and ecological perimeter with zones of recreation, animation and fun with outdoor gyms, incidental basketball courts and table tennis tables woven through.
