Concept

The design concept developed through detailed consultation with the Client group, which included expertise from Eton College and other local authority teaching establishments, in addition to national expertise on educational and dormitory design. The design allows for day and boarding pupils to mix freely while providing high quality teaching in smaller class sizes of twenty, in a total scheme area of 9090sqm gross internal. The scheme organises the new and existing buildings around a series of quadrangles, similar to the approach taken at Oxbridge Universities.
