About the project

​​We completed a major school regeneration and modernisation which included new staff and teaching spaces, amenities and arts facilities. 


​The refurbishment included upgrades in the following four buildings:

  • C.A. Love Hall gained new music and dance facilities which will enhance the school's reputation in the performing arts.
  • The Kroger Building gained a new two-level extension featuring reception, administration, general purpose classrooms, IT workspaces, library, canteen, student facilities and a passenger lift.
  • In the Winstanley Building, we refurbished general classrooms, staff offices, the technology centre and utilities, and installed a new lift.
  • The R.J. Vague Wing gained new art, media and visual communication facilities, as well as a new link to the Kroger Building.​
