The award-winning art, design and technology centre, known as the Leonardo Centre, was designed by Old Uppinghamian Piers Gough CBE and is an inspiring glass-fronted structure which allows a broad range of creative activities to take place in a single open-plan space and thereby stimulate each other.
The School has been closely involved with the development of design and technology education for more than 35 years. The pioneering development of the Thring Centre (now the Sixth Form centre) provided the workplace for the first A level Design pupils in the country.
All pupils are encouraged to explore their creativity. The Leonardo Centre is manned and open seven days a week, and is open to all pupils, whatever their public examination options. The Centre houses a fine art and printing space (which has the facility for 3D printing), studios for design (including CAD design and laser cutting), ceramics, sculpture studio, sound and video engineering and workshops primarily for wood, metal and plastic. A major refit in 2014 has seen a new designated Sixth Form studio, as well as a bespoke photography studio and a new fashion and textiles studio.
Wherever a pupil's creative interests lie, the Leonardo staff take the time to develop their talents and promote creative and ambitious work.
