St. Damian’s RC Science College, Ashton-Under-Lyne

TSH formed part of Community Partnerships for Tameside, a bidder to ITCD stage for BSF Tameside in the Summer of 2007.

The scheme for a new £15m building on the existing site at St Damian’s was fully developed with all the core principles of the building schools for future programme such as transformation education, Inclusion and accessibility, sustainability and community use.

The design was heavily influenced by the school’s strong catholic ethos in the development of the heart and faith spaces at the centre of the school.

The scheme has an inbuilt flexibility and adaptability of teaching and learning spaces together with s strong emphasis on energy efficient design.
