Established in 1878, Ruyton Girls’ School operates their Early Learning Centre, Junior School and Senior School on their single-site campus in Kew. The campus is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens and features a combination of modern buildings and traditional buildings integrating modern education facilities.
For the school to continue providing the best possible learning environments for students and staff, they have completed several redevelopments and are now embarking on the next phase of their Dream Now masterplan; the construction of the new Performing Arts Centre and new Learning Resource Centre buildings, and the refurbishment of the existing heritage listed Derham House building.
The new Performing Arts Centre building will be developed in place of two existing buildings following their demolition, which will connect to the Derham House, whilst an existing building will be refurbished to become the new Learning Resource Centre.
The state-of-the-art Performing Arts Centre incorporates a 632-tiered seating auditorium with associated rehearsal, drama, music studios, foyer spaces and a basement studio. It will include a high-level of acoustic design performance, theatre lighting and audio-visual equipment.
Learning Resource Centre
The Learning Resource Centre will be a vibrant, central hub for students and staff with upgraded façade performance boasting natural daylight and visibility. A library, student reading areas, offices, meeting rooms, arts rehearsal area, performance studio, changerooms will be housed within this building.
The existing Derham House building will be refurbished and upgraded with new functional spaces and services, whilst maintaining its internal heritage look, with connectivity to the new Performing Arts Centre building.
We’re thrilled to be working on our first project with Ruyton Girls’ School and alongside Accuraco, Sally Draper Architects and Hayball once again.
