New Classroom Facility

Foremarke Hall Prep School, Repton


A competition entry to create a new classroom facility with view of constructing it in three separate phases. One of the brief requirements was to incorporate a cloister around a quadrangle as seen at many traditional schools.

The main classroom building (Phase 1) incorporates English, French and Maths classrooms as well as an IT facility. Phase 1 is then joined by an arts and design facility (Phase 2) with two large open plan studio spaces. The orientation of Phase 2 building allows for natural light and ventilation.

Phase 3 is added to the southern part of the site and accommodates the music school. A performance hall which opens out onto the quad like a stage is surrounded by small individual rooms where music lessons are carried out.
