Our building was constructed and completed in 2013. The state-of-the-art facilities cost £10 million. Our facilities have the latest technology and equipment for students in computing, health and social care and building studies technical subjects. Since joining MTOAT in November 2021, further investment has updated the facilities further to include a Health and Social Care Suite with realistic environments to simulate best possible learning for our Health and Social Care students. On the second floor The Merchant Taylors’ Foundation has generously supported an IT Suite.
The ground floor of the building includes a modern reception and atrium. Students can socialise here for break and lunch times. The health and social care and building studies areas consists of all the technical facilities and equipment required for practical lessons. There is a main open, double-height area used for building work.
The first floor of the building brings you to our specialist computing labs. The rooms cater for all aspects of the Computing Industry and provide hardware, networking rooms, and a dummy server room. We’ve also got impressive Mac Suite for professional graphic production and many more PCs for the development of all aspects of computing knowledge. All computers are loaded with a full range of software applications, everything that an aspiring student would need.
We have modern, large classrooms for core subjects. They have a wide range of resources for developing curricular knowledge. Similarly, there are fully-equipped Science practical rooms. An outdoor roof terrace overlooking Aylesbury provides students with their own outdoor space.
In addition, the roof of our building is covered with solar panels which are connected to 3 inverters. Solar energy collected by the panels is converted into electricity and fed back into the national grid.
The facilities and equipment provided for the Computing Students are inspiring, with everything they require to enable creativity in every sense. Some of these include:
