Design proposals for a new £35 million private secondary school in west London



We have recently submitted design proposals for a new £35million 1200 pupil private secondary school for Notting Hill Prep School in London.

The proposals seek to locate the new school on the site of a grade II listed abbey and surrounding grounds in West London. The scheme introduces a series of learning 'pavilions' which are carefully positioned between existing protected trees and the existing topography of the site. A listed walled garden has been transformed to create a new multi-functional facility at the heart of the site, enclosed by a new grid shell and ETFE dome. By reusing this space, the proposals have been able to provide new elite sports facilities such as an all weather pitch and 6 tennis courts, on a highly constrained site. The scheme also includes a new sports centre with a 4 court sports hall, 25m swimming pool and rooftop multi-use games area.

EllisMiller submitted designs along with Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Walters and Cohen and Studio E. We are working in a multi-disciplinary consortia led by Terrell Engineers and James Burland, with Max Fordham and Colvin & Moggridge.
