Barton Peveril Sixth Form College’s latest £9.5 million addition to its campus was formally opened on Thursday 18th April by Dame Wendy Hall – Regius Professor of Computer Science, Director of the Web Science Institute at the University of Southampton and a pioneering figure in the field of artificial intelligence. The Peveril building houses the Business, Law and Economics departments, together with our extensive humanities curricula. It provides a stimulating environment for learning with 27 modern classrooms, two study areas (including a trading floor for Economics and Business enrichment courses) and a health and wellbeing terrace.
