Designed with environmental practice in mind, the buildings are oriented to the north to maximise comfortable conditions for students and staff while minimising energy consumption. Transparent roof strips over major spaces maximise natural light while natural ventilation is encouraged by the design of the room layout and the provision of roof ventilators. Roof insulation assists in minimising energy consumption.

The school is designed to complement and support modern teaching practices. Communication cabling for voice, video and data is provided throughout the school. This provision enables comprehensive networking, internet and e-mail access for staff and students.
