Malcolm Arnold Academy
GSSArchitecture were appointed as Lead Consultants and Architects to carry out extensive refurbishment and internal alterations at the Malcolm Arnold Academy in Northampton. The scheme addressed the academy’s inherent issues with the building since their transformation into an academy and also included the demolition of disused buildings and remodelling of the external grounds.
The £5 million scheme has transformed the school, creating a dynamic and inspiring space within the existing atrium. The space has become a multi-use facility creating areas for break out teaching, exhibition and dining for the whole Academy.
The Sixth Form and Learning Resource Centre have been remodelled to provide dedicated facilities for students and provide a showcase for the Academy to encourage pupils into further education. External alterations have provided the Academy with new sports pitches, trim trail and wildlife/horticultural teaching areas.
