Ashburton College is the only secondary school in Ashburton. The roll has grown significantly with network analysis predicting a roll of 1600 within the next 10 years. The current building stock has been surveyed and found to be no longer fit for purpose with many teaching spaces being under size, unable to be economically altered and building condition severely deteriorated to the point of there being weathertightness issues. The school caters for years 9-13 with a current roll of 1142 and has a horticultural academy offering courses for students interested in careers in the primary industries sector. There is a student learning support unit on site containing 2 teaching spaces. This is a key aspect of the site and is the only centre of its kind in the Ashburton district. There will be a need for specialist design considerations for the replacement of this unit.
The site currently accommodates an ECE which is to remain on site in the long term. In addition there is a historic building (Menorlue) which is used by the school music department and the community.
Ashburton College is to undergo a site wide redevelopment delivered by the Ministry of Education’s Capital Works Southern team through a traditional procurement approach. The outcome of the project is to ensure buildings are replaced with fit for purpose energy efficient, weathertight, durable and resilient buildings that can be economically altered to suit the changing needs of the school into the future. The project includes the addition of roll growth classrooms and replacement teaching spaces with new MLE spaces. In addition to teaching space replacement there is a requirement to provide non-teaching spaces to MoE calculated entitlement areas.
