Located in North Sydney, the School engaged Hayball to create a visionary 50-year masterplan. Focusing on innovation and legacy, the masterplan enhances the existing green spaces and built fabric to enable future-focused learning and marks a transition to a curriculum based on student-led education.
Its design references the historic character of the college, founded in 1875, and in particular the Chapel Building and Mercy Hall. The materials are specified to complement the heritage fabric, with sandstone and masonry at the base giving way to rust-coloured fins and aluminium screening in the raised form. Within the building, there will be new specialized science labs and adjacent science theory learning spaces, as well as zones for collaboration and team teaching. There will also be a large indoor sports gymnasium with two multi-purpose courts and an exercise gym.
