Brentwood School to open new Bean Academic Centre with teaching and study spaces

Posted by Stephanie Broad | January 29, 2016 | Facilities management

Opening this spring, the Bean Academic Centre will be the intellectual heart of Brentwood School.

With large classroom spaces, a lecture theatre, a café, spaces where students can work together collaboratively, and areas where students can work by themselves, the Centre provides different environments for different modes of working.

Lecture space in the Bean Academic Centre

Students will have access to more technology in the form of new computer suites, interactive whiteboards, giant projector screens, and Apple TV systems where they can connect multiple iPads to a large screen.

There is a digital learning hub where, as the iPad initiative continues to roll out to other year groups, student Digital Leaders will be on hand to help other students and staff develop digital literacy.

The exterior of the Bean Academic Centre

Students will have better access to books and electronic resources than ever before. The Library staff and Academic Fellows will be on hand from before 8am to 6.30pm to help students with their work and advise them on finding the best resources.
