Project One Campus

New buildings for Warwick Independent Schools Foundation


Project One Campus

Warwick Independent School Foundation (WISF) contracted Speller Metcalfe to deliver Project One Campus as part of their vision to create a cohesive educational campus where students get the benefits of same-sex education whilst still having opportunities to collaborate outside of the classroom.

Delivered over two distinct phases, the ambitious scheme has brought together all of the foundation’s schools – Warwick School, Warwick Prep and King’s High for Girls – onto one unique, coeducational campus in order for them to best share resources and activities, whilst enjoying the benefits of single-sex education.

Project One was delivered over multiple phases in a live school environment and included:

  • The complete relocation of King’s High School for Girls from a listed-building in the city centre to join the other schools at the Myton Road campus;
  • A three-storey Sixth Form Centre for both King’s High and Warwick School students, encompassing catering and social space, formal study areas, careers hub, a library and quiet study areas;
  • Construction of a ‘wrap-around’ extension to King’s High forming a new Sports and Technology centre which is linked to the existing Bridge Sports Centre;
  • A state-of-the-art music school with practice rooms and performance spaces.

All the buildings are of an extremely high specification finish and involved a wide range of specialist works and materials.

The project won the RIBA West Midlands Award 2021.
