Having recently delivered award-winning projects for Radley College and Charterhouse, we continue to make strong progress on a wide range of projects for many of the UK’s leading independent schools: from sports centres to libraries, boarding houses to science buildings, we feel privileged to have the opportunity to contribute to so many wonderful educational environments.

Charterhouse Science Onsite Progress

The Charterhouse School Science & Mathematics Centre has achieved practical completion ahead of its official opening in the autumn term. The School’s aim is to provide pupils with the best facilities of any school in the UK and revolutionise the way these subjects are taught at Charterhouse.

It is my belief that this remarkable new Centre for Learning will be transformational for Downe House.Emma McKendrick, Headmistress.

Stowe School

We are preparing a planning application for the new Design, Technology and Engineering Centre at Stowe School, whose aim is to provide academic and vocational training for pupils who will contribute significantly to the UK’s drive for creativity and expertise in manufacturing, product design and architecture.

Winchester College

Our consented scheme for Winchester College’s Southern Campus represents arguably the most ambitious and wide-ranging changes to the school’s estate since its foundation by William of Wykeham in 1382. It includes the new Physical Education Centre which will create a landmark at the heart of the Southern campus; the Sports Centre will be broken into three separate ‘pavilions’ comprising the swimming pool, sports hall and the fitness suite.

New Projects

Following an invited competition earlier this year, we are now working on a number of projects for Canford School, a top independent co-educational boarding and day school in Dorset, including a new library, reconfigured assembly hall and new CCF centre.
