Project details

Bringing nature and technology together as an environment.

Specialising in technology and ICT, Leigh Technology Academy is located in four new colleges all under one roof.

We created each college as a ‘school within a school’ which link along a crescent shaped internal street. The colleges are paired around open plan resource and teaching areas, set as daylit triple height winter gardens, bringing nature and technology together as an environment.


  • a quality school building for 1500 pupils
  • delivering high levels of sustainability and passive environmental comfort


  • brimming with innovation yet designed within DfSCF cost limits
  • delivering approximately 65% of the carbon emissions compared to DfSCF benchmarks and a reduction of 30% against Part L
  • raises the bar in terms of teaching facilities for the 21st century
