The Project co-locates Shirebrook Academy, with 960 pupils aged 11-16 and up to 60 post-16 students, with Stubbin Wood SEN school (separate case study). 

Whilst each school maintains its individual identity on the new campus, the co-location enables efficient and inclusive sharing of some spaces reflecting the shared ethos that the best results come from collaboration and partnership.

The Academy is arranged around the striking atrium or ‘heartspace’ that is overlooked by all the curriculum areas and supporting hall, dining, socialising and independent learning functions.

The building’s organisation reflects the Academy’s specialisms in science and construction and includes workshop space with covered external areas.  The design blends teaching spaces with “passively supervised” learning/social spaces. These learning/social spaces use a range of furniture, colours and graphics to provide a clear identity for each curriculum area.

“Bond Bryan has produced a school, which is outstanding in every respect. The jewel in the crown of our school is the atrium, described as ‘beautiful’ and ‘like a five star hotel’. It has never failed to reduce visitors to jaw dropping admiration. They are a talented company with a great ability to work with us as clients with great patience. The outcome is a stunning new school building that the whole community can use and be proud of"

Brian Midgley, Senior Vice Principal
