Trevor Blake Fit Out were instructed to undertake the refurbishment and conversion of a boarding house at Charterhouse School to maintain their high standards and enrich their offering.
‘Founded in 1611, Charterhouse is one of the UK’s leading independent boarding and day schools, providing an outstanding education for boys and girls aged 13 to 18.
The School is set within an inspiring 250‑acre campus, conveniently located close to London and within 50 minutes of both Heathrow and Gatwick airports. With 17 grass sports pitches, 3 full‑sized Astroturf pitches, an athletics stadium, a sports centre, 24 tennis courts and a 9‑hole golf course, not to mention beautiful lawns and gardens, the campus is one of the best, if not the best, in the country.
Combined with a 235‑seat theatre and separate music performance and art display spaces, the School’s setting encourages pupils to contribute, and provides a safe community in which to explore and grow.’
Working to the design brief we achieved the client’s goals and completed the project to provide Charterhouse School with refreshed and modernised spaces to the advantage of staff, pupils and the wider school community.
