Seaford College has embarked on the second phase of a 20 year master plan designed to upgrade existing facilities for its 620 students.
The college on the edge of Duncton, has submitted plans to the South Downs National Park Authority to convert the existing Assembly Hall, which currently houses a large hall space and stage into a learning resource centre with six classrooms.
It also wants to refurbish and improve sixth form and Year 11 student facilities in the Hollington Centre to create a revitalised sixth form centre.
Presenting its plans, the college said in 2009 it had begun an ‘estate plan approach’ developing a master plan for a comprehensive programme of replacement, extension and refurbishment to upgrade and make better use of its buildings.
Extensive work already completed includes replacement of boarding blocks, demolition of the existing boarding block and its return to open parkland, demolition of housing and the building of 19 new houses and demolition of the staff accommodation block.
The restoration of the sports centre and an indoor sports centre and gym are due to be completed this year.
