All change at Uckfield College site – science building gone

Gone – the science building at Uckfield College. It has been demolished as part of redevelopment of the site.

There’s empty sky now where the distinctive science building used to be at Uckfield College.

Demolition was proceeding at pace yesterday, and the building which looked derelict only a couple of weeks ago, and which was in full use the previous school year had gone.

How the science building used to look at Uckfield College. Now it has been demolished.

It was only a matter of time before this happened because a new school building, stretching along the front of the college site, was completed and occupied by September last year.

Work is also under way on another new building to the south of the site with the framework now visible. 

In addition the building housing the Pamphilon Theatre, described as the ‘hockey stick’ building in a planning application, probably because of its shape from above, was being re-roofed.

The framework of another building goes up on the Uckfield College site. To the right of it is the Pamphilon Theatre building which is being re-roofed.

The Sixth Form Centre, and art block, will remain and rugby pitches and a Multi-Use Games area will be at the centre of the site.

The top of the sixth form centre at Uckfield College can just be seen, over hoarding around the building site, from Lime Tree Avenue.

The plan below, shown at the time the new college scheme was revealed, shows how the site will be laid out.

Plan shows how the Uckfield College site will look once redeveloped. The new building, top, runs along Downsview Crescent. Another new building at the bottom of the plan – its framework is now visible – is next to the Pamphilon Theatre building which is currently being re-roofed. The red broken line shows where the old building used to be.
