They have a vision for the creation of a secondary school and a higher education facility that incorporates all levels through secondary and further education and culminate with higher education teaching research and awards to PhD
They have had some concept work done by architects that suggests that, for many reasons including legal, they need to create separate projects to accommodate the secondary school equivalent for ages 11 to 18 and that the 18 plus building should accommodate both further and higher education facilities.
