Description

A Special Educational Needs school in Hull for students with Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties.

It accommodates 80 students and includes residential accommodation for 35 students and 12 staff. Multi Agency Space is also provided for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services and Child Social Care.

The design delivers attractive, accessible buildings that promote a sense>of belonging and self-worth with high standards of visibility throughout, including good levels of natural light, easy to manage passive supervision, clear orientation and wide circulation routes.

Long life low maintenance materials are employed throughout. The materials are a contextual response to this part of East Hull and engender a ‘civic’ presence to the school.
