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.

The former school opened on the site in Spring Lane in September 1967, where it has remained ever since.

Year 7 pupils are scheduled to attend the new school in September 2022.
