Procured through Scape, designed by Sheppard Robson and engineered by Mouchel, the school will be an exemplar of sustainable features, including a solar panelled roof to generate electricity. State of the art facilities will include a theatre, recording and dance studies and basketball courts.
Subject to planning permission being granted, the new school will be built on the former Long Lane council depot creating more space and better access than the current site in Walton. The school will open in time for the start of the academic year in September 2014.
Anthony Dillon, managing director of Willmott Dixon in the North West said: “We are delighted to be continuing our work with Liverpool City Council, following-in from our project at Notre Dame Catholic College in Everton, which is on schedule to open in September 2013. We look forward to working closely with Archbishop Beck school and ultimately delivering them a school that provides state of the art facilities for students and staff alike, and more broadly is something the community can rightly be proud of.”
