The secondary school is part of a new ‘all-through’ primary and secondary school for Northern Arc, which will be run by the University of Brighton Academy Trust.

The secondary school includes all the facilities recommended by the Department for Education for a school of this size, including a dedicated Special Support Centre, with strong sustainability credentials, in line with the West Sussex County Council Climate Change Strategy 2020-2030.

As a demonstration of this Council’s Climate Change Pledge, the building aims to achieve Passivhaus certification, reflecting ultra-low carbon emissions in operation, with an acute focus on energy efficiency, insulation, on-site energy generation and no use of fossil fuels in the running of the building. Further to this, the design minimises, as far as practicable, embodied carbon.

West Sussex County Council is preparing to submit a reserved matters planning application in August.
