Harris Westminster Sixth Form Academy
Set within the historic context of the City of Westminster, 11 Tothill Street, has been architecturally transformed from a Ministry of Justice office building to a state of the art Sixth Form for Harris Westminster. The Academy is a collaboration between the Harris Federation and Westminster School and caters for able children no matter what their socio-economic background.
The building was designed in 1936 by the respected firm of Sir John Burnett, Tait and Lorne. The original façade, adorned with stone figures of Greek gods, Vulcan, God of Fire, Atlas carrying the world on his shoulders and Hercules stealing the golden Apples of Immortality, has been retained.
Over two phases, a rabbit warren of small offices and tired spaces has been opened up and refurbished to create professional and functional teaching and laboratory spaces.
