OVERVIEW

Eden Boys' School

ADP was appointed by Thomas Vale Construction to design an Islamic Boys’ School for the Tauheedul Education Trust.

The Eden Boys' Secondary School in Birmingham is designed for 700 pupils, which includes a 200 pupil sixth form, a four-court sports hall, MUGA and associated external landscaping and car parking.

The ‘super-block’ layout of the plan is centred around a triple-height atrium space which brings natural light into the heart of the building. The atrium space includes feature walls and coloured acoustic wall panels, which follow the school’s brand colours. Layouts were developed to provide a school hall that is orientated towards Mecca to help facilitate prayer. The dining area is located on the ground floor of the atrium, creating a multi-purpose space ideal for break-out and events.

Externally, the building is finished in white render and a blue brick, which articulates the entrance and school hall. The external materials are in keeping with the three adjacent Grade II listed gatehouse buildings, due to be refurbished in the next phase of work.

The project is the second in a batch of three schools for the Tauheedul Education Trust. The first project was Eden Girls’ School Coventry, a secondary school for girls, and the third project is a 3FE primary school in Birmingham.
