St Benedict’s is a leading independent Catholic co-educational School providing education from Nursery through to Sixth Form. vHH were appointed to design two new buildings as part of the school’s masterplan.
The first new building completed in November 2015 and combines the ADT department with a new Sixth Form centre, enhancing the facilities of the Senior School.
“The new Sixth Form Centre at St Benedict’s School has provided a new and impressive venue for reunions and events for our parents, pupils and particularly our Old Priorians. With a separate entrance into this contemporary building, we have been able to hold several major, first-time events using these new facilities. The flexibility of the ground and first floor in the Sixth Form Centre allowed us to host over 800 parents and pupils for the school’s Careers Fair in February 2016, including the display of a new Jaguar XE car in the open landscaping designed to link the existing school and the new facilities. Our 55 Old Priorians (alumni) from the Class of 2010 thought the Scriptorium (study area) and its innovative study alcoves was a much-needed addition to the school.”
