The Academic Centre Opens
We are delighted to announce that the truly inspiring new academic facilities at the heart of the Quad Development are now open, following two years of careful planning, design and execution.
Light, spacious, contemporary spaces with bold, bright interior colours are set to further fuel the forward-looking academic culture at St. Edward’s, providing a whole new range of learning environments to inspire pupils of all ages.
The architectural design has created a fluid learning environment. Teacher-led study spaces and areas where pupils will be working independently sit alongside each other, giving year groups more choice in how they approach their studies. Whether they need a quiet area for research, a break-out zone in which to discuss a project with their peers, a stimulating view from one of the individual study decks overlooking the Quad or the less formal workspace of the ground floor cafe, pupils will discover new opportunities to work together, think together and be together.
The Library, Reading Room and Academic Centre are now open. The Cafe and Hall will be complete by Half Term.
You can find out more about the progressive academic ethos, at the very heart of the design of the new building here.
