Capita’s architecture team has completed a study on behalf of Chipping Campden School in the Cotswolds for a new masterplan which also includes a new drama, performance and education venue.
The school, which is situated in one of Britain’s most picturesque towns, is a high performing school and as such is one of the leading non selective schools in the UK. It has been serving the local community since 1440.
The vision is to replace the current ageing drama and hall facilities and to also provide a whole new masterplan for the academy to progress. The Capita team have worked with the school on concept designs for a small flexible theatre and education building with dance and drama studios, bar, and teaching space. The new facilities will enable the school to embrace wider drama subjects and allow the community to play a greater role in school life.
Over the last two years Capita has also advised on the redevelopment of adjacent school owned land for housing which will help fund the project. We have helped procure a development partner – Leybourne Homes – and are now appointed to provide consultancy for masterplanning and architecture for the proposed scheme which includes over 30 new homes. 14 of the new homes will be for key workers at the school to enable younger teaching staff to start their careers in one of the most expensive communities in the UK, with the rest for private sale to fund development.
