Deyes High School


Department for Education / Kier



Development of a ‘net zero carbon in operation’ eight-form entry
Secondary School for 1,200 pupils to replace the current Deyes High School buildings except for the sixth form, for 300 pupils, which will be retained.

The development comprises the demolition of the existing school
buildings, excluding the Sixth Form, and the erection of a two and three-storey new building with associated indoor and outdoor sports facilities, a part-covered six court multi-use games area (MUGA), external canopies, an energy centre and service compound, covered cycle parking, motorcycle and car parking.

Sustainability has been a key driver on the project, the final design incorporating a Biosolar green roof, solar panels, top-notch thermal insulation, and passive ventilation solutions. Plus, air source heat pumps have been installed and there is no dependency on fossil fuels for heating or hot water.
