Outwood Academy, Doncaster
CPMG and Wates Construction secured a further two academy projects in Doncaster thanks to the success of our Campsmount Technology College project. It was used as a case study in the key recommendations section of ‘The Sebastian James Education Capital Spending Review’ by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).
The first of these new projects was Outwood Academy, a secondary school for 1,350 pupils, including a substantial sixth form in Adwick-le-Street, Doncaster. The proposals created new purpose-built facilities for the academy on its existing fields to the south-west of the original school buildings. The new accommodation consisted of two buildings - a principal teaching facility with a separate sports centre to maximise potential for community use.
The proposals established a strong frontage to Great North Road. Key, large-scale facilities such as the main hall, dance and drama faculties and learning resource centre are situated on this elevation. A generous overhanging roof shades the upper storeys from the western sun and provides a unifying element across the façade. This, and the three-storey arrangement of the academy, gives a fitting sense of scale and presence.
The second project secured was the De Warenne Academy in Doncaster.
