The Skinners Kent Academy is a Secondary School with academy status in Royal Tunbridge Wells. The school provides places for 1150 pupils over 3 storeys.
The central swept conical form of the building extends out northwards with three articulated wings providing the senior houses of the school.
The Skinners project was Noviun’s first major project 100% developed in a BIM environment and included a complex rendered conical form.
Since opening, the Academy has gone on to achieve ‘Outstanding’ status by OfSTED.
