The 7 FE school accommodates 1450 students in total, 91 of which will form part of the co-located Horizon school, providing for students with Autism on the same site. The 3 major curriculum groups translate as 3 major zones or ‘schools’ within the building [World School, Performance School, Trade School]. Horizon School (Autistic department) forms the 4th equal part of the overall school. The four schools are visually and physically linked through the central atrium/ learning street. This heart hub of the school acts as the glue that unifies the whole school, giving a single school identity. At SPH the individual is known and valued.
A key driver of the environmental design was sustainability. Mixed mode ventilation using heat recovery seeks to minimize energy consumption before providing for 20% of the energy demand with on site renewable generation. The building has achieved BREEAM Very Good.
