Litherland High School - AV Awards Finalist Project

CDEC Ltd - AV Awards 2011 Finalist uses Edis AV products for Litherland High School


A 27.5 million (US$41 million) next-generation school which has just been completed at Litherland in Sefton, Liverpool UK was a finalist project in the AV Awards 2011 last week.

The hi-tech solar powered building boasts colour-coded rooms featuring the latest computers along with dance and recording studios. 


The school is the first in Sefton, Liverpool to be completed under the Building Schools for The Future programme.

It features outside classrooms, solar panels and a wind turbine with separate hairdressing and beauty salons equipped to professional standards and interactive classrooms with projectors and sound systems.

School bells are replaced by classical music which change on a fortnightly basis.


The colour coding ranges from green for student support areas to blue for calm classroom areas, to red or yellow for music and dance.


Headteacher Jim Donnelly said he believed the improvements were "long overdue." He added that: "The building has been carefully and individually designed to enhance learning in the 21st century".

The central avenue unites the three distinct curriculum areas of the school and features the professionally-designed hairdressing and beauty salons; "it is called the Avenue of Stars to reflect our strong links with Hong Kong."

The school's old building was the first school to be opened by Lancashire County Council after the Second World War which will now be demolished to make way for a new "village green" for the use of the school.
