Great schools feature great spaces. 21st Century Learning Spaces come to Collingwood’s Morven Campus: The transformation of Collingwood School's Morven campus into a state-of-the-art facility provides Collingwood students with every possible advantage. The existing Glenmore Wing had reached capacity in terms of timetable flexibility, numbers of electives, ways in which technology could be integrated into lesson plans and how classroom layouts reflect the way Collingwood now teaches. The new School features modern classrooms that accommodate 21st Century Learning, different teaching styles, and are conducive to team teaching and easily convertible from intimate to large lecture theatre. The school remained fully operational during construction.

Project Highlights

The project focuses on delivering agile 21st Century Learning spaces. The school reflects Collingwood’s approach to curriculum delivery by reinforcing collaboration, creativity and communication through flexible classroom layouts and seamless technology.

Interior spaces offer “streets of learning” that intersect at a Student Commons, with natural day lighting and views to the outdoors, providing the experience of expansiveness, all while delivering intimate areas for informal study, collaboration and social opportunities.

The project provides a new University Guidance Centre, new gyms and fitness centres, modern dance and theatre facilities and a Commons Area that will foster creativity and collaboration.

The new Morven campus re-orients the School to face Grouse Mountain, taking advantage of the natural view and surroundings, while providing every opportunity to Collingwood students allowing them to excel and achieve their full potential.
