Sixth Form Centre

Project management of a refurbishment project for St Mary's Catholic School, an independent academy based in Longbenton, Newcastle upon Tyne.


St Mary's Catholic School


Longbenton, Newcastle upon Tyne





St Mary’s remains one of the most over-subscribed schools in the North East. Building on the momentum of its increasing sixth form enrolment, the school needed a new facility that would provide an exclusive area for the students to both study and socialise.

A series of existing classrooms and offices have been opened up to allow for a social study hub and café breakout area, as well as a silent study room and learning resource centre. Built in facilities include a student managed café, bleacher seating, integrated technology and a range of both group and individual workstations.

The materials and colours have been carefully considered across the range of settings to create a light and airy environment, as well as to incorporate the school’s colours through the furniture and accessories.

Governors, teaching staff and students have all been enthused by the outcome. The Chair of the Board of Governors described the scheme as ‘vibrant, exciting and stimulating’ which has ‘achieved everything the school was looking for, and more!’

The quality of the design, materials and finish has created a bespoke space which we believe provides the Sixth Form with a much-enhanced experience at St Mary’s, something which we feel our Sixth Form students really deserve.
