The redevelopment facilitates collaborative learning by providing a number of formal and informal spaces, acting as a point for interaction and social activity in an adaptable environment.

It includes two pivotal classrooms – each accommodating classes of 60 students – and associated formal and informal study areas. These formal classroom settings are designed to support collaborative learning approaches. While the informal study areas provide a place for students to continue work after class, to work in groups and as individuals, or a place simply to socialise.
