The new Littlehampton Academy is currently approaching the end of the construction phase, with final completion due in late summer. The building is one of the largest schools undertaken by ArchitecturePLB with an occupancy of 1900 pupils. It is organised as three teaching wings set around a central hall and dining area acting as the school’s heart. Each wing is light and spacious, with wide corridors and a clerestory roof light to allow excellent natural daylight to penetrate. The wing ends are fully glazed with views out to the Downs, towards the sea and across the extensive school site.
