Bringing a positive teaching and learning space back to the community
Located in the Cumbrian countryside, Whitehaven Academy provides a new modern and inspirational place to learn. The 900-place academy is designed for flexibility, with the future in mind. Supporting current and future generations of Whitehaven, with capacity for expansion and plans are already in motion to add a 150 pupil sixth form.
The new school, replacing the pre-existing building, improves the children’s ability to learn, staff retention and the relationship with the community.
The three storey block creates natural flow between subject areas, with specialist spaces for science, PE, design and technology. Adjoined at one end by a double height sports block, with a sports hall, four courts, and dance studio.
An energy efficient approach runs through all aspects of the design including; durable, air tight and well insulated buildings, maximising daylight and natural ventilation.
