Work starts on Stamford performing arts centre refurb

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS] Construction has started on this new performing arts centre for Stamford School designed by GSS Architecture

The Northamptonshire-based practice is working on a 1,500m² scheme which will see an existing gym converted into a new facility housing both the school’s music and drama departments.

As well as creating new classrooms, performance spaces, and recording studios, the project includes the refurbishment of the main school hall, where retractable seating will also be installed to create a flexible space.

The practice has previously worked on a £6 million sports centre, a research and learning centre, and a new main entrance atrium for the school which was originally founded in 1532 but is now part of the Stamford Endowed Schools - a group of three schools for boys and girls aged 2-18.

The latest project is set to complete in September.
