Sheppard Robson explain their innovative design for the 950-pupil Notre Dame Catholic College in Everton, Liverpool

The design of the £15.3million college was created ‘to allow architecturally engaging schools within limited budgets’.

Referred to as the Liverpool Schools Model, the approach creates a flexible and economic architectural ‘shell’ in which individual interior components are added to create a mix of learning and social spaces bespoke to the individual school’s requirements.

The design allows the school to be adapted and rearranged over time, with the clear-span ‘shell’ concept making it considerably easier to reconfigure the building for another function in the future.
