Community Campus

Schools worldwide are asking questions about how education must evolve to match the changing world and the aspirations of young people, their families and communities. Our academy and campus symbolise these ideas by feeling less like a school and more like a university or business - as well as being a learning hub for the whole community. The building, designed by award winning architects BDP, reflects the surrounding countryside and internally has a beautifully open, light feeling that ensures people working together can see each other and feel connected as part of our learning community. The building also provides high quality learning and social space for students and doubles as an excellent community venue for a range of events. Facilities include:

  • 300 seat theatre
