Planning granted for £30m Parliament Hill redevelopment

Parliament Hill School will undergo a major new build development

Posted by Lucinda Reid | December 19, 2017 | Bricks & mortar

GSSArchitecture have successfully gained planning permission for a £30m redevelopment of Parliament Hill School, located in the London Borough of Camden. Attended by over 1,250 students, aged 11-18 years, the major new build development will include a sports hall, science labs, and general teaching classrooms and refurbishment of the existing dining hall building located at the centre of the site.

In addition, the neighbouring William Ellis School, a four-form entry school for boys, will benefit from a new two-storey addition housing drama and music suite facilities.

Both of the schools are part of the LaSwap Sixth Form Consortium, and a new sixth form building will also be provided, comprising a unique design that includes a green roof and living green walls. Works will begin on this much needed teaching accommodation in January 2018.

The redevelopment is funded under the London Borough of Camden’s Community Investment Programme, and will be delivered in a staged approach in order to allow the teaching services to remain fully operational, minimising disruption to the students’ education. BREEAM ‘Very Good’ is targeted for the scheme as well as performance criteria in excess of the London Plan.
