Cost per m2: £2,930

These dayhouses provides study rooms for 59 pupils and two 150-seater dining halls for girls’ and boys’ boarding houses. The central courtyard acts as a shared space for socialising. The bridge between the houses caters for potential fluctuations in pupil numbers by allowing for an increase in one and reduction in the other. The triple gabled frontage responds to the scale and articulation of adjacent Victorian Gothic and Italianate villas, while the polychromatic brickwork connects to William Butterfield’s main school chapel and academic buildings.
