City Academy Norwich
The new City Academy in the heart of Norwich will replace the existing Earlham High School. The vision for the new academy is to create and foster a culture of high aspiration amongst the students, with a strong focus on equipping students with the skills and abilities to progress into the next phase of their lives, not just simply acquire qualifications. The academy will focus on learning excellence in English and Digital Technology.
The three storey building is a hybrid of structural steel ladder frame and cross-laminated timber, and will accommodate classrooms, workshops, seminar spaces, an interactive theatre space, main hall and central atrium.
The design team working on City Academy also successfully completed the Open Academy Norwich in 2010.
