Ellis Williams Architects

Wilmslow High School

We have a passion for creating
great buildings and spaces that
people enjoy using. Our approach
is collaborative, enthusiastic and
consistent - design individuality
that is achieved by an ability to
listen and reflect client need

Unsere Passion ist das Entwerfen von Gebäuden und Räumen, in denen sich Menschen wohlfühlen. Unsere Haltung ist gemeinschaftlich, enthusiastisch und anspruchsvoll. Unsere Ergebnisse sind getragen von der Fähigkeit des Zuhörens und der Umsetzung der Anforderungen und Wünsche des Bauherrn.

 

EllisWilliams were commissioned to carry out a suitability assessment and masterplanning proposal for the existing school. The school was rapidly growing in size to a 10FE, 11-16, + 300 place sixth form. Out of this study came the reorganisation of some existing spaces with the refurbishment and extension works together with the development of sixth form facilities. 

The building now provides a new approach to learning for the school's sixth form pupils. Traditional classrooms sit alongside a new learning zone which provides open access to ICT resources, group work and independent study, all supported by teaching and technical staff. Individuals and groups will use the space, both as part of timetabled and extended study. It is configured to provide for a variety of learning needs including whole group teaching, small group study and to enable independent study. The school has relocated specific curriculum areas into the new provision to which younger pupils have access.
