The design of Brighton Grammar School’s new Middle School reinforces the School’s mission, ‘we teach boys’. This new campus supports the School’s targeted pedagogical approach to the diverse learning needs of boys in Years 7 and 8, providing an iconic new facilities that nurture collaboration and celebrate the students’ transition into secondary school.
The main, purpose built Middle School building, the Urwin Centre for Learning, is planned around a central Nexus, surrounded by a series of four Learning Neighbourhoods. These provide a variety of formal and informal learning environments to suit both the teaching methodology and the individual learning needs of students.
Situated to the edge of the most public corner of the site, the clean, modernist exterior and its striking double height public entry reinforce the School’s civic presence and modern approach to education.
