  • Architecture
  • Darwen Studio School is housed in a refurbished and extended listed model lodging house. The extension is sympathetic to the original building, whilst creating a more modern feel, the two elements linked via a glazed central atrium. The school, for students aged between 14 and 19, offers mainstream qualifications, delivered through real commercial business-based projects, and linked to the world of work. The feel of the free school is of a professional workplace rather than a traditional school environment.
