Scarborough Sixth Form has unveiled a brand new look for one of its main buildings as part of a major refurbishment scheme.

Marley Eternit’s architectural fibre cement facade materials have transformed the media and arts block into a more appealing and energy efficient building.

Graham Boyce, architect at Seven Architecture, said: “Our brief was to rejuvenate the existing block to create a more contemporary and appealing building. We chose to overclad it in colours that referenced the existing red brick and slate roofed campus. We used landscaped fibre cement panels, with staggered joints to further emphasise the linear nature of the building.”

In addition the college is one of the first buildings in the country to have a Monodraught Cool-Phase system - an energy-reducing ventilation system which has been installed into one of the classrooms.

The college has invested £3 million into buildings and resources with more refurbishments taking place during the summer including the renovation of the entrance and car park.
