New building for Bristol studio school

Specialist 'Digitech Studio School', first of its kind in Bristol, to move out of interim accommodation

Posted by Stephanie Broad | February 29, 2016 | Bricks & mortar

The Digitech Studio School Bristol is the city’s first studio school, specialising in the digital, high-tech and creative sectors. Construction company ISG has been awarded the scheme, via the influential EFA Regional Framework.

ISG has completed an enabling package, carrying out light refurbishment works to provide interim accommodation for the Digitech School on the existing ‘The Grange’ School site. A new two-storey steel frame school building, with a metal-clad exterior, will provide a range of modern classroom and design spaces, along with a sports/dining hall and  kitchen. ISG will also carry out a range of external works, including the provision of a new car park, forming an exterior student social area, carrying out hard and soft landscaping and installing photovoltaic panels at roof level to provide emission free electricity.

Rob Martin, ISG’s Western regional managing director, commented: “Studio schools provide a creative and commercially-oriented environment for students, working in partnership with high-tech businesses to design bespoke curriculums alongside conventional GCSE and A-level qualifications. This new school building has been custom-designed as an environment to foster close collaboration between students and successful commercial organisations, providing rich and diverse learning environments to inspire the next generation of creative entrepreneurs.”
