Opened by HRH Queen Elizabeth II, the Sports Hall replaces the former gymnasium and is located adjacent to the main school building designed by John Francis Bentley, the architect of Westminster Cathedral in 1888.
Evolving solutions to the requirement of many independent schools to use their sports halls for exams, general assemblies, presentations, parents evenings and plays etc as well as sport proved an interesting but rewarding challenge.
“I quickly realised the complexity of this project and knew that I would need to establish specialist partners to help deliver the solution. An early partnership was struck with Ball Hall”
