Project Detail

Fullhurst Community College, Leicester

Large Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2019 Finalist

The redevelopment of Fullhurst Community College enabled the school to increase its capacity from 900 to 1,500 pupils.

Through partial refurbishment and new construction, Fullhurst added 21 new classrooms, three science labs, a music room, food and design technology workshops and a drama studio.

Outdoor areas were landscaped with car parking, new play areas and a new courtyard with outdoor dining facilities.

Project Overview

The front and side wing facades of the existing building were retained at the request of Leicester City Council, to preserve the heritage and character of the college.

The remaining school buildings, dating back to the 1960s, were demolished to pave the way for the design and construction of the new two-story teaching building. It links into the existing structures to create one fully accessible and operational new school building.

The new teaching block is now a base for the school’s year seven and eight pupils. The roof of the new building incorporates 600 square metres of photovoltaic panels which could save the school £10,000 per year in energy costs.
