Winchcombe School Building

The Winchcombe School previously comprised two separate schools spread out over a large site resulting in excessive circulation and poor communication. Architype organised the building into a series of distinct hub spaces, with the heart of the building containing the library, ICT and practical teaching spaces. These spaces have direct access to quiet external areas for outdoor learning.

The new layout of the school creates free flowing, open and well supervised circulation throughout, orientated around the central heart space. New flexible teaching spaces allow individualised learning, and we have expanded and improved SEN provision. Architype’s design brings the schools together as one, creating a new identity and street presence, and allows for future expansion to 2FE.

Previously a foundation school administered by Gloucestershire County Council, Winchcombe School was converted to academy status on 1 June 2011. However the school continues to coordinate with Gloucestershire County Council for admissions.
