Foster + Partners' Northampton business academy opens

Foster + Partners’ Corby Business Academy in Northampton has opened for the new school year.

The 1,200-pupil school specialises in business enterprise and boasts a host of state-of-the-art facilities, as well as additional services for 70 special needs students.

According to Foster + Partners, the building provides students with a ‘diverse mix of business boardrooms’, a hydrotherapy pool, a theatre and a restaurant.

The firm’s head of design Spencer de Grey said: ‘In designing Corby Business Academy we addressed the learning needs of a wide range of students and sought to create a light-filled, inspirational place in which to teach and learn.

‘The building also employs a number of highly innovative strategies – including wind catchers on the roof - to improve its energy efficiency and ensure its sustainability over time.’
