The campus replaces the previous Wick High School and consolidates a number of existing primary schools, a nursery, sports facilities, a community library and swimming pool into one integrated community facility.

The design is focused on an internal street, which runs the length of the building, with a wing arrangement where teaching accommodation is separated based on departments and their individual requirements. The street is utilised as additional breakout space, dining and performance space.

Spaces between the teaching wings are used as external courtyards, allowing pupils to benefit from semi sheltered play space.

Although physically separated, the swimming pool, gym and library are fully integrated into the overall campus.
