We are extremely excited here at Brighton Secondary School to share details of our upcoming Capital Works to aid the transition of year 7 students into high school in 2022.
The school has been assigned $13.8m for the construction of a new building as well as the refurbishment of some older spaces to support contemporary learning.
Commencing in July 2020, work will begin constructing our new building, specifically designed for use by our Middle School students. It will be located where the current Beach Volleyball courts are positioned (the courts will be relocated) along the north perimeter of the school.
Across 2 levels the contemporary learning building will contain:
- 12 general learning spaces
- 3 STEM labs
- A Maker Space to further STEM learning
- Think tanks
- A gallery and forum space
- Learning commons and breakout areas
- Teacher preparation spaces
New landscaping will also be undertaken around the new building and additional bicycle parking installed.
Refurbishments will be taking place on the upper floor of the Spence wing of the school, which is the oldest building on the site. The refurbishment works will take place from late term 4 2020 and into the summer school holidays. Once complete, the refurbishment will provide:
- 6 general learning spaces updated for contemporary learning
- A learning common for classroom breakout
- A fresh staff preparation space designed to bring teams together
IMPACT ON SITE ACCESS
Construction logistics are currently under consideration and more information will be updated here as this is further defined.
Wherever possible, we are reducing impact on our day-to-day operation and student learning. All existing buildings will remain accessible and in use for student learning, albeit when refurbishment work requires the Spence Building to close for safety during works.
