A New Theatre for The Ecclesbourne School

Our long-standing relationship with The Ecclesbourne School in Duffield has resulted in the completion of our fourth major built project for the school. Over five years, we have worked closely with the staff and governors of the school to deliver successive steps of a master plan vision.

Our role has involved the coordination of funding applications for each phase - the success of our collaboration on this is evidenced in the new sports centre, refurbished refectory, and new languages faculty, as well as a number of smaller remodelling and fabric upgrade works. The latest building, a new theatre and English faculty building was officially opened this term; it provides the school with a much-needed multi-purpose performance space, opening up greater potential for pupil participation and public productions. New classroom and seminar spaces for the English department - including dedicated storage for the books which still have a place in the digital age - provide a flexible cluster of spaces with expansive views across the first-XI pitch to the Derbyshire countryside beyond.

And that's not all! We have recently finished designs for a new visitors' entrance, and enhancements to the external sports courts, both of which are out to tender for completion in the new year.
