The new school will be 58,000 square metres and will be situated to the north of St Brelades Social Club and opposite the airport football pitches. It has been designed to provide the cutting edge, modern facilities needed to deliver a 21st Century curriculum to up to 850 students.
The school has worked closely with the design team to create an outstanding layout to meet the learning needs of its students. Highlights include; a separate sports centre to include a sports hall, dance studio, trampoline space, changing areas, an external all weather multi-use games area, netball, football/ rugby pitches and a grass running track. Internally, alongside naturally lit classrooms containing media walls that allow engaging and clear presentation of knowledge to students, the school boasts a central street leading to subject areas designed to meet the modern demands of lessons and extra-curricular activities.
These include an immersive zone with interactive walls and floors, IT suites and mobile technology to make use of the hi-speed wifi network, a lecture theatre (hypothesis room) for more traditional presentations and demonstrations to students, creative arts and technology spaces to house the latest industry standard equipment and machinery. The layout has been specifically designed to allow physically impaired students to access all areas with ease and a range of exciting social areas are provided to cater for large whole year groups through to small friendship groups.
