School gets mocked for looking like a giant sperm

School gets mocked for looking like a giant sperm

It's hard to deny the facility resembles one half of the beginning of life.

A school's 'state-of-the-art' design has been mocked for looking exactly like a sperm.

Monkseaton High School in Whitley Bay, North Tyneside, has been ripped online after a former student shared Google Maps aerial shots of the strangely shaped facility.

The ex-pupil posted the images on Facebook and said: "My old high school. Surely someone knew."

The number of hands that design would’ve passed through.

In the images, it’s clear that the oval-shaped building resembles a sperm cell, while its long and narrow path leading up to the car park looks like its tail.

Or hell, maybe even a mouse on the keyboard for those who wanna keep things a little more wholesome.

Either way, this architecture is swimming, I mean swinging for a miss.

Facebook users proceeded to mock the school’s 'inconceivable' building.

One joked if it had a high rate of teenage pregnancies, while another claimed they walk past the building every day but wouldn't be able to look at it in the same way since viewing the bird's-eye-view images.

One person said via Facebook: "Got to be a huge triangle forest nearby."

Another said: "Well how else do you expect them to make new high schools?"

A third commented: “Who the f**k designed Monkseaton High School and why would they make it the shape of a single sperm?"

While another shared: “I'll bet that Monkseaton High School in the UK has a good course on human reproduction and a strong swim team.”

Oh these are good.

Despite the roasting, North Tyneside Council insists it wasn't built with the shape in mind.

Local reports say that Monkseaton High School students moved from the old building into the current 'state-of-the-art' facility almost 15 years ago after eight years of planning and construction.

The oval shape was said to utilise natural light and encourage physical activity due to its web of classrooms surrounding the sports hall, located in the centre.

The building was reportedly developed by Dewjoc Architects, who compared the building to a spaceship.

Perhaps one from the classic 2001 Space Odyssey, full of sexual symbolism.

Monkseaton High School was approached for comment but refused to respond despite repeated requests.
