A new sixth form building provides a learning and social space for students.

The challenge

A new sixth form building was required by the school to provide a crucial social and informal learning space along with dining facilities, a flexible auditorium and classrooms.

Our approach

We developed a stakeholder engagement plan that included initial community consultation early in the process where comments and concerns could be taken on-board. Later we held community information events tabling the developed plans ahead of making a planning application.

“I cannot praise Roberts Limbrick enough. They have provided creativity, whilst always being aware of the practicalities. I am very happy to recommend Roberts Limbrick to anyone”

The results

The transformative building has been designed to reflect the ethos of the school, delivering a more effective and engaging learning environment, using a glass façade to put the sixth form on display and create a sense of pride and aspiration for the rest of the school and the wider community.
