Project Background: The complex is one of the first university training schools in the UK, a 'lab school' initiative modelled on similar projects in Finland and the US where innovative educational ideas are trialled.

As well as providing a broad academic curriculum, the university training school provides initial and ongoing teacher training and research into improving educational practice.
