This project relocates the girls’ high school from a constricted town centre site to four new buildings on the Warwick School and Prep School campus on the outskirts of the town. The main school is set around a quadrangle while a sports and technology building is wrapped around an unsightly existing sports hall. There is also a sixth form centre and music building to be used by all schools. Built to a tight schedule to accommodate the school year, the scheme uses mixed red brick, precast concrete details, zinc roofing and timber soffits.
