New Drama and Maths teaching block

Frome community college is a 13-19 school that offers an extensive curriculum and actively teach independent learning skills.

This project was won by design competition hosted by the local authority, with emphasis placed on design, value and experience for the selection process in order to create these new departments creating a form and focus for the college campus.

The building is arranged in an ‘L’ shape pattern which creates a quad to the front and allows the building to be split into two distinct departments; Maths and Drama.

The position of the building has been carefully considered to provide pleasing vistas and minimal inconvenience to existing buildings.

The building is naturally ventilated and constructed from sustainable building materials, with the project being completed on budget and on time.
