Sandwell Futures : Tipton Campus

The Alexandra Campus comprises of Alexandra High School, Batmanshill PRU with a Virtual Children’s Centre, a 52 place Nursery to replace the existing 30 place one and Tipton Further Education College.

The site will form the new Tipton Learning Campus as part of the Building Schools for the Future Programme (BSF) and will play a crucial role in the regeneration of North Sandwell.

After a series of pupil workshops exploring ideas the scheme was resolved as a set of carved granite stone seats with stainless steel plaques with acid etched hands of the pupils depicting their dreams and aspirations for the future. The carved stone blocks contain the phrase " Our Future Our Hands' at the PRU which is reversed for the Alexandra site.
