The works for this project included the construction of a new single storey structure. The new building incorporated a steel frame with concrete pad stones and reinforced concrete ground beams on trench filled foundations. Traditional cavity walls were constructed in concrete brickwork/block work and smooth rendered finish. All new roofs were pitched with metal roof decking.

A key design feature was large south facing glazing elements with wide soffit canopies to minimise solar heat gain. High specification M&E installations included ICT suite, networked data cabling, light/motion sensor lighting and PV Panels. Accommodation provision included Classrooms, Welfare, Canteen, Storage and Tuition areas and a Sensory Room. Externally high quality hard landscape provided access for maintenance circulation around the building.
