Westcliff High School

When Westcliff High School for Boys was successful in its bid for Capital Funding, it was able to address significant accommodation and capacity issues for its Science department and sixth form.

  • Opened in 2017
  • Science Department and Sixth Form

As a fully functioning school, timescales were crucial. Working efficiently and keeping budge in mind were crucial to ensuring the school’s buildings were delivered within the 18-month period.

To adhere to Government spending plans the funding allocation had to be spent by the end of March 2014, and we were selected in May, by competitive interview, to guide the school through the design process and manage the procurement of the project and received Planning Consent just five months later. 

Over these five months we worked closely and successfully with the school to identify its accommodation requirements, prioritise its options and develop detailed proposals. The design seeks to accommodate a science department and sixth form, providing the high quality functional learning environment required while in a highly efficient and natural light-filled room.
