Creating a striking new addition

  • Project: Ecclesbourne School, Derbyshire
  • Client: School Board of Governors
  • Contractor: Hallamshire
  • Value: £1.5m

Lathams’ design and planning expertise helped Ecclesbourne School to meet the demands of fast-rising student numbers, particularly into the Sixth Form. The project delivered a range of new teaching spaces along with new social space for Sixth Form activities on an already well-developed site with limited space.

With the new building set to command such a visually imposing position, a design was developed which not only fulfilled the school’s learning and social requirements, but also conveyed and embodied its vision for the future, providing a bright, open and flexible main space within for both social and performance use, with classroom, seminar and office space radiating out from that central hub.
