The contractor has started work on the scheme, which involves the construction of the school and associated facilities at Cambridge’s Clay Farm development.
The project involves building flexible classrooms around a central atrium, alongside a community sports hall and associated changing facilities. There are also a number of external works, including the installation of two multi-use games pitches and grass-seeded playing fields that will be open to the public.
The college will have a focus on science and technology. Construction is scheduled to complete in spring 2016.
Morgan Sindall area director Bob Ensch said: “The scheme incorporates some great sustainable technology set within a spacious, light contemporary school building. It’s fantastic to be working with the project team to create this inspiring space and we look forward to delivering an outstanding building next year.”
The school is designed to achieve a BREEAM rating of Very Good, with photovoltaic panels and ground source heat pumps.
