Parliament Hill School
GSSArchitecture have successfully completed and handed over the £30m redevelopment of Parliament Hill School, located in the London Borough of Camden, which achieved a BREEAM “Excellent” rating. Attended by over 1,250 students, aged 11-18 years, the major new build development includes a sports hall, science labs, and general teaching classrooms, as well as the refurbishment of the existing dining hall building located at the centre of the site.
In addition, the neighbouring William Ellis School, a four-form entry school for boys, will benefit from a new two-storey addition housing drama and music suite facilities. Both of the schools are part of the LaSwap Sixth Form Consortium, and a new sixth form building has also been provided, comprising a unique design that includes a green roof and living green walls.
The redevelopment was funded under the London Borough of Camden’s Community Investment Programme, and has been delivered in a staged approach in order to allow the teaching services to remain fully operational, minimising disruption to the students’ education.
