NVB has submitted a planning application for a new standalone preparatory school for Aldenham School. The new 1,900 square metre building will be self-sufficient providing all of the facilities the nursery, prep-prep and prep departments require. Although Aldenham School has a five hundred year history, the preparatory school is relatively recent and the school decided that the time was right to provide them with purpose built facilities to suit the particular needs of that age group.
NVB’s appointment is for architectural and landscape design and the proposals include high quality play and outdoor learning facilities as well as wildlife enhancements around the periphery of the school.
NVB were appointed following a design competition and have worked with Bidwells, Stace, Integral Engineering Design, BSD and Rumball Sedgwick to develop the scheme to a tight programme. A planning decision is expected in April 2019.
