Bexhill High School

Our commission with Bexhill High School saw us deliver a new build secondary school and Skill Centre on two sites. We provided cost and project management.

The exemplar design follows an innovative design with the focus being on creating learning zones. The zones are positioned around a ‘heart’ space which is the hub of the building and brings together the children for eating, meeting and circulating between classes. This brought some acoustic challenges for such a large open space which the team successfully overcame.

Additional facilities included as part of the build include construction of a new three storey main building, ETFE roof over the hub, external learning areas, floodlit all-weather pitch, multi-use games area, external landscaping and better cycle and pedestrian access. The Skill Centre provides vocational skills such as hair and beauty and motor mechanics.
