Malet Lambert School Language College will have an increased pupil capacity of 1,500 after the existing buildings are remodelled and refurbished. Planning approval was received in January 2011 and the school will open in September 2012. It is being built by Esteem Consortium, was designed by HKS Architects and will cost £25.5 million.
This mainstream secondary school will retain its iconic formal frontage, with connection through a covered courtyard to a new two-storey building across the rear of the site. The Dearing Centre will be retained and refurbished and used as the science faculty.
The school already has significant levels of community use and the remodelled/new build will offer space for family centred services and encourage wider participation and use. This includes theatre space, drama and dance studios, fitness suites, a sports hall and a floodlit all weather pitch.
To support the school community, the new building will also include space for family centred services, a business conference zone and the space and facilities to support a resident artist.
