Gale & Snowden Architects would like to congratulate the pupils, staff and Governors of Torrington Bluecoat School for achieving such an impressive OFSTED report. 
Gale & Snowden were the Architects for the building which was competed in 2006.  The building design follows the practice’s approach to low energy, healthy building design and features: super-insulated timber frame construction; high levels of natural daylight; natural and low VOC materials; and an innovative covered entrance orangery space, amongst an array of educational, ecological and energy efficient measures. 
The project was originally undertaken as part of a community consultation process which reviewed education for all ages in the Torrington area, known as ‘Torrington Vision’.  Gale & Snowden are very proud to be part of the Torrington Vision having also been commissioned to design a series of projects connected to the ‘Vision’ including the Early Years Centre, the Children’s Centre, the extension to the Torrington Juniors School and new drama and art departments at Torrington College  all designed and built over the last two decades with the Community.
