The rebuild of Northwood Secondary School has been shortlisted for an award at the London Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Building Excellence Awards.
The £35 million project will offer 1,080 school places for pupils in Hillingdon, and has been shortlisted for an award for Best Educational Building.
The school building has three storeys, measures 9,800 square metres in size and promotes an academic focus on performing arts. The building features 53 classrooms, specialist design and technology rooms, a sports hall and a sixth form study. A stage area with retractable seating sits at the heart of the school, and additional arts facilities include an outdoor amphitheatre and performing arts specialist rooms.
Mark Anderson, Headteacher at Northwood School said: “We officially opened Northwood School in October last year, and I’d like to thank staff at Hillingdon Council for all their support. This school is about inspiring staff, students and the local community, and already the new building has brought an added energy and ambition to our staff and students, as well as enormous sense of pride. We are also very pleased that the building is being used by the community seven days a week. With our new building, we are creating an outstanding school which the whole community can be proud of and rely upon.”
The awards will be held on Friday June 16 at the Guildhall in London.
