Channing School

20 March 2014

We’re seven months into the construction period at Channing School and work is progressing well. Buckley Gray Yeoman’s plans will add three buildings to the school’s estate including a new sixth form centre. This will provide a range of teaching spaces with seminar type studios alongside ‘open-plan’ university style learning, all naturally ventilated and with views onto the schools green landscaping. The new sports hall will provide first class teaching facilities for a variety of indoor sports; along with a performing arts building that will provide a 300 capacity semi-professional theatre with retractable seating. Completion is due late Summer 2014 for phase 1, with phase 2 to follow in Summer 2015.
