New build link block structure joining an existing sixth form centre with the science block. The existing 1960s built structures were constructed using the CLASP system. The nominal spare capacity in the economic CLASP system required the link to be self supporting; a single column was used to support the new link with out of balance loads taken by the adjacent buildings.
