Great Barr School
Sixth Form Centre

The practice were commissioned to undertake a high level feasibility study for the provision of a new 600-place sixth form centre on the site of the existing secondary school.

Our approach examined a number of options for the placement of the new-build facility on the site whilst rationalising the existing school buildings and layouts, improving circulation into and across the site and establishing greater provision of soft and hard formal outdoor sports. It was also important that a new identity for the sixth form centre with increased visibility from the street was created.

Thus the options explored extended to the integration of the new centre with the existing school building fronting Aldridge Road, thus allowing shared facilities to be developed with the main school.
