Concept

Chichester Free School will be built at the old disused Carmelite Convent in Hunston. This building will be part demolished and part refurb to create a new school big enough for 1,280 students from Reception age right through to Sixth Form. The former building was vacated by Nuns in 1995 and it was then used to house agricultural workers. A suspected arson destroyed what was the chapel in 2009. The new buildings will house a 600m2 Sports Hall, 250m2 Hall and dedicated Music and Performance spaces.
