Included in the design, facilities will provide for catering technology, textiles, hair, beauty and therapy.
There will also be provisions for Art and 3D design, digital technologies, business and finance, IT and health and social care.
The internal design of the project has been developed around 4 central 3-storey atrium’s creating vertical connectivity as well as providing excellently lit central spaces.
A mix of robust and modern design features have been incorporated into the external composition of the building, ensuring a striking aesthetic for all users of the new School.
Students last left the Chaucer Technology site four years ago, leaving a mix of derelict buildings and rubble on the site.
Planning Approved for Barton Court
The former school opened on the site in Spring Lane in September 1967, where it has remained ever since.
Now that planning has been approved for Barton Court School, demolition works are to start in the next couple of weeks with an opening date scheduled for Year 7 pupils to attend the school in September 2021.
Congratulations to all the design team on their hard work in getting this project approved and make sure to watch this space for further developments along the way.
