Godolphin School New Science and Technology Facilities
BrightSpace are currently working with Godolphin School, Salisbury, to improve and enhance their Science & Technology facilities. The proposals also consider future expansion and re-modelling of the school’s Performing Arts Centre.
The overriding brief was to help them raise the profile of their ‘STEAM’ subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Maths) and in their initial brief the school had identified a site central to the existing buildings for the relocation and expansion of their Science and Technology subjects.
However, early on in our analysis of their initial brief, we identified the opportunity to significantly improve their Science and Technology facilities in their current location, through the addition of another storey and some minor internal remodelling, which then released the school’s suggested site at the heart of the school to create an exciting opportunity for a central ‘hub’ for students and staff.
Ideas for what this central ‘hub’ might be are being explored but they are likely to be centred around shared facilities such as a new Learning Resource Centre, Lecture Hall, Multi-use/flexible open spaces and tech-enabled teaching spaces. This space will give the school a ‘wow factor’ that will set them apart from their competitors and will also serve as an impressive shop window for the work of the students.
This shared space will also enable and support more cross-curricular learning, will provide improved staff facilities and student services, thereby ensuring that the new-build benefits as much of the school as possible.
