Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital – Sixth Form Centre
GSSArchitecture were appointed by Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital to design a modern Sixth Form Centre within the former boarding bathrooms and adjacent derelict tower. The independent boys’ school is located in the heart of Bristol, in its historic Grade II setting, and has a national reputation for excellence.
The design process included extensive consultation with English Heritage and the Local Planning Authority to develop and agree the design prior to the submission of formal planning and listed building applications. The new facilities include private study areas, common room, IT suite and café dedicated to Sixth Formers, but with one of the school’s key ethos on pastoral care, the integration of the Sixth Form into the existing school was also important.
The project was designed and constructed to a very high standard, with the use of high quality materials and craftsmanship to provide a modern and robust facility.
