This protective courtyard building of classrooms and bedrooms, for a new venture preparing international students for GCSEs, is part of a larger school masterplan. This allowed some of the facilities to be included in the main school’s? reworked Malthouse next door. The weathering steel cladding the upper two levels works with the historic brick alongside; structurally it is a concrete platform up to first floor level and cross laminated timber for the upper two floors.
