The new school sits on a steeply sloping and extremely prominent location overlooking Blackburn and draws students from diverse local communities, which have very significant levels of social deprivation.

The basic diagram loosely wraps the learning accommodation, around a central ‘heart’ space that combines assembly, performance, dining, study and exhibition and views to the surrounding landscape are maximized, aiding orientation and celebrating the institution’s place in the community.

"Nicholas Hare Architects have designed an excellent building in which to educate young people. The imaginative use of natural light and a simple but striking colour palate help to create an open and positive working environment in which staff and students can thrive"
