Information about this scheme

Trumpington Community College is the first new secondary school to be constructed in Cambridge in 40 years and is the culmination of a highly collaborative process with the community and the three clients – City of Cambridge Education Foundation, Cambridge City Council & Cambridgeshire County Council. The project consists of three components – a new secondary school, a learning support unit for pupils suffering from Autistic Spectrum Disorder and an enhanced community sports facility providing a range of indoor and outdoor spaces. Designed around a Danish school model with particular reference to Orestad College, large proportion of open planned learning, innovative dining and hall spaces have been provided. The building is one of the key public buildings to be delivered in a new residential quarter and urban extension to Cambridge, setting the quality standard for public facilities in the area and helping to attract more families into new housing surrounding the school.
