The first secondary school to be built in Staffordshire in over 20 years, John Taylor Free School is the first building opened as part of the ambitious masterplan to expand Burton-upon-Trent.
With its 1,440 pupils learning amongst scenic woodland surroundings, the new 8-form entry secondary school is set within two distinct buildings.
GNA collaborated with Entrust, facilitating extensive stakeholder engagement to develop the educational vision for the new school and community. The result was an attractive academic superblock and separate sports pavilion, incorporating a dramatic cantilevered library, and sixth form spaces, revealing the principal entrance to the main building.
