Harris Academy Falconwood is a 6FE school with post 16 provision catering for a total 1150 pupils.
The main entrance is clearly visible when entering the site and reinforced by the use of strong signage and graphics to emphasise the power of the Harris brand. The main entrance is emphasised by the over sailing canopy which is punctured by three circular cut outs.
Visitors are drawn into the main reception, which is flanked by the sports complex and the academy’s administration centre and specialist subjects.
By the use of high quality cladding and simple clean lines, for ease of supervision, the aim has been to produce a building of civic quality which gives students an introduction to a more business like environment .
