Our proposal for the redevelopment of the Senior Department at 66-68 King’s Road is under review following feedback from Planning Committee Members in June 2020
The proposal includes a new specialist teaching building for media and music, to be situated adjacent to the existing buildings. Navigation and accessibility issues will be improved by creating a new collegiate courtyard at the heart of the school.
A new performing arts centre, an octagonal building at one corner of the courtyard, will provide drama facilities, bespoke practice rooms for individual music lessons and an open-plan space at the top for teaching and intimate music and drama performances, with views into the tree canopy. The current Theatre will be refurbished, extended and will link into the new building.
Behind this, a new block will be erected, consisting of six general teaching classrooms. There are associated areas for staff, storage and services, which will support the running of the building
The construction process will be subject to the strict regulations designed to minimise disruption to neighbouring properties, staff and pupils.
The project will be phased over a number of years to ensure the school can continue to operate as normal. Significant works will be undertaken during summer holidays to minimise traffic disruption.
