Sweyne Park: A Case Study in Sustainable Collaboration

Last year, we were delighted to work in collaboration with Morgan Sindall on the construction of our new History Block.

This led to us being the first school in Essex to be net zero in operation.

Morgan Sindall has now written an interesting case study about the project on their blog, which you can access by clicking .
