This secondary school consists of a main block, four freestanding classroom pavilions and a freestanding gymnasium. The pavilions, each with two levels of three theory classrooms, are linked to the main block by a glazed footbridge set halfway between levels to keep stair climbing to a minimum. In the centre of the main block is a double-height assembly hall cum canteen surrounded by staffrooms and labs. The more elevated roof of the assembly hall is a composition in prestressed curved concrete shells supported by small steel columns.
