Project details

The Outwood Academy, formerly the Shafton Advanced Learning Centre, forms part of Barnsley’s Building Schools for the Future Programme. It accommodates full-time pupils and provides specialist facilities for the local community.

A central outdoor courtyard creates a science and technology garden on the first floor and brings daylight into a double-height heartspace at the centre of the building.

The community-orientated learning areas for art and music and a learning resource centre are connected to the south-facing social spaces which spill outdoors providing views across the Yorkshire landscape.
