Meeting the needs of independent schools

Understanding the most important reasons for choosing private education

  • Understanding the culture of the independent school sector, and its design and construction priorities
  • Recognising the need for independent schools to evolve to compete on an international as well as national level
  • Delivering refurbishment of historic school buildings alongside modern facilities

Independent schools are often recognised for their traditional values, the unique nature of their school buildings and the quality of their facilities. We understand the challenges faced by these schools as they seek to attract day-school and boarding pupils from both within the UK and overseas.

In addition to delivering facilities through traditional procurement and construction, we can also provide strategic and design advice to bursars to assist them in the management of their estate to secure maximum value from buildings and assets.

Our experience in delivering new build educational facilities is complemented by our expertise in working to restore and refurbish listed buildings, which often form part of independent school campuses.
