Background

The project comprises a new build classroom building over three storeys and the refurbishment of an existing mock-castle style academic building on an established Education First campus. The re-developed site will provide a college campus within a Conservation Area of Torquay for 650+ international students studying A-Level and International Baccalaureate courses.

Delivering 42 modern multi-media enabled classrooms, a restaurant with commercial kitchen/servery, learning resource centre, science laboratories, ICT laboratories and flexible art spaces with wide views of the South West coastline.

Located on a prominent limestone hill overlooking the centre of Torquay, the two main buildings are separated by an elevation difference of 10m; using structured hard landscaping and raised link bridges the site has been designed to be fully accessible.
