Transformation for Hitchin private school

Vincent and Gorbing Architects recently completed the new classroom and changing accommodation for Kingshott School, a private school on the outskirts of Hitchin. The distinguished piece of architecture has transformed the look of the school and improved teaching methods.

Following successful preparation of a masterplan, we were appointed for a full architectural commission on a two phase school expansion project. As the site is within the Green Belt, a sensitive design responding to the existing landscaping and features was essential.

Phase one consisted of a new teaching, science and changing block to replace temporary facilities. It included nine classrooms, an art room, a large music room, four small music rooms, a food technology room, a science laboratory, an IT room, a performance studio and eight changing rooms. Phase two consisted of a new hall, dining hall and kitchen.

The project was successfully completed in 2015. The new Teaching block has transformed the learning experience within the school.

The practice places great emphasis on designing architecture of high quality and this approach has resulted in a significant media profile and industry recognition.
