Trumpington College, Cambridge
Project Completed: Trumpington Community College, Cambridge
Trumpington College is a new build, 750 pupil school with enhanced community sports provision serving the new community at Clay Farm. The school is designed around Danish school models with compact planning, allowing a large proportion of unstructured teaching with a high level of connectivity. The school also has a specialism in science which will be showcased in the interior of the school. The design of the school follows a high sustainability agenda including the school’s commitment to sustainable transport through cycling, walking and the low carbon guided bus. The colours selected on this build were custom RAL1035 Pearl Beige and stock RAL7022 Umbra Grey to compliment the multi coloured brickwork.
About Trumpington College:
The new school features an innovative open plan design, inspired by Danish school models. It features a light-filled central atrium, with teaching areas laid out over two floors. Extensive use of glass connects all the areas of the school as well as giving views of the playing fields and surrounding community. An art installation in the atrium by Umbrellium has created a virtual cat which the students can interact with to understand how much energy the building is using. The school also has a Community Sports Centre which is run by Abbeycroft Leisure.

Cambridge is famous for its university, currently one of the best in the world, and its scientists. It is the town where: the atom was first split, where the structure of DNA was discovered, where Charles Darwin developed the theory of evolution, where Newton developed his theory of gravity, where the order of human DNA was first discovered, where the electron and neutron were discovered, where Stephen Hawking of black-hole fame used to live and work. It has been home to some of the great thinkers of the last 500 years.
