Connell Sixth Form College
A welcome education offering to East Manchester
Designed for students age 16 - 19, the 600-place further education college, run by the Bright Futures Educational Trust, is a welcome asset to the area, inspiring young peoples’ learning and development.
As part of the wider Beswick Community Hub Masterplan to breathe new life into the area, the college provides better educational opportunities in a unique environment, where social and learning activities go hand in hand. In addition, the college provides sixth form education for the young people of Manchester City Football Club Academy on its football training programme.
The college is also strategically located close to Beswick Leisure Centre, encouraging the use of the fitness facilities, including a swimming pool and gym, enhancing their health and wellbeing. Setting an excellent example of strong, sustainable design, the development also achieved a BREEAM Very Good rating.
Our design provides the space for more facilities, for example, a mix of subject specific classrooms, including a drama studio, as well as areas for relaxation and socialising. This encourages interaction and collaboration between the students, placing a positive effect on their learning.
