As part of a larger programme of works involving the Avenues Centre, the site of the former Endeavour school, and Trinity House Academy, Hull Training and Adult Education needed a new interim facility to move into to enable their current facility at the Endeavour building to be vacated to allow a full refurbishment and extension.


The Avenues Centre, a Grade II Listed Building in West Hull is a former education centre and was identified as a suitable location for Hull Training and Adult Education to move into as an interim solution whilst a new permanent city centre site was vacated and repurposed.

An impeccably coordinated plan was put in place to allow the multiple relocations between each site and educational provider, including the repurposing and major refurbishment of a number of buildings.

Working within the parameters of a listed building and valuable asset to local residents and community groups, Esteem was the delivery vehicle driving the refurbishment and upgrades to the building ahead of Hull Training and Adult Education’s move.

Works included;

  • Full internal strip out and demolition
  • Replacing the existing roof to give it further longevity
  • Repairing and restoration of windows
  • Creating a new data ICT department
  • Toilet block refurbishment
  • Safety checks and repairs to fire alarms, security system, boilers, and other equipment


In just four months, the building had been transformed into a safe and operationally sound environment for Hull Training and Adult Education, whilst maintaining the character and original features of the 134-year-old Grade II Listed Building.

Together with contractors Houlton, the building has been brought up to more modern health and safety standards, as well as increasing its longevity and whole lifecycle.

With sustainability high on the agenda, LED lighting and other more energy efficient materials, and equipment, have been installed.

The major programme of works continues with the full refurbishment of the former Endeavour school  ready for Hull Trinity House Academy to move in. This will enable them to increase their Year 7 intake from 120 pupils to 240, as well as becoming co-educational for the first time in its rich history.

The multi-storey building currently occupied by Hull Trinity House Academy will be vacated in August 2023, as they move across to the refurbished former Endeavour Building, enabling a programme of repurposing and remodelling to be undertaken to accommodate the requirements of Hull Training and Adult Education.

This phase of the project is currently under development with works scheduled to commence in August 2023.
