Consett Academy
Durham

A new academy built under the Durham BSF programme creates a whole new facility that replaces two existing schools. Constructed around a three-storey atrium with dining and social space, which is over-looked by classrooms and open teaching areas with an Innovation Deck - a fusion space between Science, Technology, Math's and Design - as a focal point at one end and the Library and sixth-form as a counter at the other.

The creation of spaces, both internally and externally, in which to deliver various types of learning, the use of quality materials, colour and light to boost student personal esteem and attainment, have all been driving factors in the design.
