Project Overview

The new secondary school accommodates 1,250 students aged 11-19, in a purpose-built campus in Medway.

In particular, the layout creates three self-contained colleges within the overall structure, establishing a more intimate and nurturing environment; a shared central dining atrium creates a dramatic heart space shared by all colleges.

The building massing and elevational treatment was key to securing planning consent on a sensitive greenfield site, and the design capitalises on retained and enhanced landscape features to provide visual screening and a rich ecological setting for the new school.
