Paul Murphy Architects designed a new school for Harris Federation of Academies, providing a new two form entry school for children from 11-18 with behavioural problems.

The project involves the extension and reconfiguration of the existing school accommodation to provide a new two-storey teaching facility and the re-design of the existing sport fields to provide an all-weather mini hockey pitch and two hard surfaced netball courts.

A new two-storey modular building was proposed to provide 12 new classrooms, administrative and other ancillary facilities, linked at ground and first floor level to the existing building.

The existing building was to be remodelled to provide two new Science Prep Rooms and a new dining facility.
