The millennium project

  • Project: S. Anselm’s Preparatory School Bakewell, Derbyshire
  • Client: The Governors
  • Scale: New classrooms, break-out spaces, a lab and sports hall
  • Value: £0.5m

Lathams was appointed to prepare a masterplan in preparation for the school’s major millennium appeal with a total of seven phases of work which followed.

The physical constraints were considerable as the site is on an exposed hillside, as well as being subject to the planning restrictions of the Peak Park. In addition, the school needed to be kept fully functional throughout the construction process.

Key to the success of the whole process was the way the masterplan boosted every area of the curriculum through the expansion of teaching spaces and more efficient use of existing accommodation.
