Planning goes in for Crosfields School

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2019

We have just submitted a planning application for a new senior school building at Crosfields, a co-educational independent day school in Reading. Our proposal, chosen through an invited competition, makes the most of the site’s hilltop position, orientating the building to take in the views. The existing school is made up of single and double storey buildings set around courtyards and green spaces, with a pleasant, campus-like feel. Our new building continues this, carefully weaving between the existing mature trees across the site and creating a new senior school courtyard with views across the town.

The first phase of work would include a new front entrance, nine new classrooms, staff area, welfare hub, library, flexible performance space and a café that spills out into the courtyard and a planning decision is expected in early autumn.
