Text description provided by the architects. A New Prep School Building re-accommodates facilities which include classrooms for Years 5 and 6, Music, Art, “STEAM” facilities, and a School Hall. The School also wished to address the demand for Pre-Prep and Nursery by constructing a new building, alongside new reception classes which will smooth the process of starting Preparatory School.
The site is bound by mature trees which enclose a rolling topography of grassed areas, stepped woodland dells, and play areas. Views outward to the south and west across the valley are a feature. The site, therefore, required a particular response, appropriate to its setting.
