Working in an operating school was never going to be straightforward, even more so when the project was an infill, connecting to two existing buildings one of which required substantial underpinning. The team from Field and Hall worked closely with the school however to ensure that disruption was minimal, and the project was delivered to programme.
This major, four storey building provides state of the art facilities for the performing and creative arts, an area of strength for the school. It does so however in a way that links adjacent buildings both physically and stylistically, the understated result a credit to the design teams, particularly from Athfield Architects and engineers Clendon Burns and Park.
