Westminster City Council has approved BDP’s plans for a London girl’s private school, including a creative learning centre
The £4.5 million project for the Francis Holland School in Belgravia, central London, includes a single-storey creative learning centre with a rooftop garden, a three-storey side extension to its gym building, a second floor addition to its junior school building, and ground and first floor extensions to a further building. The school library will also be refurbished.
BDP project architect Deborah Dix said: ‘It has been great working with such a vibrant and progressive school to deliver the highest standards of teaching and learning for all ages.
‘The development of Francis Holland School provides an example of how intelligent design can be used to maximise efficient and effective space.’
Work is expected to start on site this summer, with a completion date scheduled for the following academic year.
Former pupils at the school include model Cara Delevingne, actor Sienna Miller, socialite Jemima Khan and chair of Arts Council London and non-executive director of the Berkeley Group Veronica Wadley.
