Gloucester Language Immersion Centre
Gloucester UK


Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios were appointed in September 2009 to design the £5.8 million Language Immersion Centre which is built at Blackfriars Priory, Gloucester. Dating from the 13th century, it is the best preserved Dominican Priory in the country. Language immersion is a highly original approach to the teaching of foreign languages, developed by Gloucestershire County Council as part of a successful bid to the Department for Children, Schools and Families for the construction of a world class learning facility in Gloucester. The centre focuses on languages rarely taught in the UK such as Mandarin Chinese, Arabic and Russian. The residential facility “immerses” schoolchildren, mainly from ages 14 to 19, for prolonged periods in the target language within a digital environment that recreates aspects of the country in which that language is spoken. Further funding for the project was received from both English Heritage and the South West Regional Development Agency. A group of 19th and 20th century industrial buildings that replaced the south-east quadrant of the medieval priory have been removed and the Language Immersion Centre repairs the form of the cloister courtyard. The new structure includes much needed service spaces that unlock the viability of the medieval priory as a public venue, and help define a new public route linking across the site through the cloister to connect with the new square. The remote upper floors of the adjoining priory ranges have been reconnected and are now usable and accessible to all. (Source: FCB Studios). Architect: Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios.
