Outwood Academy, Doncaster
Thanks to the success of Campsmount Technology College, used as the case study for the key recommendations of The Sebastian James Education Capital Spending Review, CPMG and Wates secured a further two academy projects in Doncaster.
The first of these 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, drama and LRC are situated on this elevation. A generous roof overhang 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.
