Creating a culture of lifelong learning and the encouragement of enterprise. Focusing on excellence. Raising the aspirations of students, staff and the local community. This embodies the vision and goals of top schools around the world.
Built as the final project of a suite of three HKS projects within the Building Schools for the Future Project in Hull, Andrew Marvell College sits as a beacon on its community on the eastern side of the city. Rising over three stories, the dramatic form of the building creates a marked civic presence and places education back at the heart of the community.
Previously housed in a disparate set of buildings, the new school opened in January 2013 was designed to provide a focus for learning and actively encourage wider community participation. The design allows for easy access to a series of community-focused facilities including theatre, drama and dance studios, sports and leisure facilities spaces for community- and family-centred services including a business conference zone.
