Stoke Park School Sixth Form, Coventry
We were commissioned to design the new sixth form centre for Stoke Park School and Community Technology College in Coventry. The former sixth form centre was housed in temporary accommodation and the school wanted to replace this with a purpose-designed multi-functional building that responded to the dynamic teaching and learning needs of a sixth form.
The new facility is a two-storey building providing 956 square metres of accommodation. The building is naturally lit and ventilated with clerestory glazing allowing both light and air to enter the deeper plan classrooms, providing the school with a comfortable and healthy, low energy working environment.
The building was designed to be flexible, with internal partitions that can be re-positioned in order to adapt to changing class sizes and future teaching requirements. The new sixth form centre includes teaching and learning spaces, library and ICT areas and specialist teaching accommodation, including science labs and a music suite.
The building also includes a renewable energy system to minimise the fossil fuel it consumes - the majority of its heating will be supplied by a ground source heat pump, providing a sustainable energy solution for the school.
