Sir John Deane's College, Northwich
Sir John Deane’s College is a sixth form college on the outskirts of Northwich town centre in Cheshire. The existing college comprised a mixture of different buildings including an early 20th Century grammar school, 1980s teaching blocks and a number of semi-permanent mobile classrooms.
Broadway Malyan’s initial brief was to rationalise this accommodation, demolish some of the outdated buildings and incorporate new teaching facilities. The brief was subsequently expanded to look at the complete redevelopment of the site to provide a sustainable 21st Century college.
The completed design incorporates the original grammar school building into a striking modern campus. The circulation route forms a student ‘street’ through the centre of the scheme linking both entrances, off which the key spaces such as the refectory, theatre, Learning Resource Centre and teaching departments are accessed.
