Tring Park School's for the Performing Arts new development project has been designed by London architects Burrell Foley Fischer LLP

The master plan, which consists of three main phases, aims to further enhance the school experience and give a larger number of them access to its training and education. 

The first phase - which will begin in January - will be a new building consisting of three floors and a lower ground floor, containing a state-of-the-art boarding house for 70 pupils, six academic and vocational teaching spaces, a theatre workshop and other valuable pupil facilities. It is due to open in September 2019. 

Marketing Director, Miriam Juviler, said: 'Our first priority is to create more living and boarding space, so that we can accommodate the growing number of students who join us each year. Our recent success stories in the world of entertainment have led to a huge increase in enquiries from parents with children keen to follow a career in the performing arts, and we would like to expand our facilities so that we can train even more talented young people in line with this growing demand.' 

Phase two of the project will be a building containing pastoral support facilities, a Sixth Form Centre with study facilities, changing rooms for day pupils, a well-appointed Art Department and an integrated staff common room, which will free up two additional teaching spaces elsewhere in the school. Full planning permission has been obtained and it is hoped that construction will begin soon after phase one is complete. 

The third and final phase is a 450-seat theatre with backstage rooms that can be used as either changing rooms or teaching areas, allowing the school to add technical theatre skills including set design, sound and lighting to the curriculum.
