Claremont Fan Court School

Long term development plan for independent school set in a 90 acre landscape of outstanding heritage significance. The masterplan establishes a comprehensive framework for phased development of the whole site over the next 20 years.

The highly sensitive site is within the Green Belt. It includes scheduled monuments; grade I, II* and II listed buildings; and a grade I listed landscape, with surviving work by Vanbrugh, Bridgeman, Kent, and Capability Brown.

“We were delighted to achieve a successful outcome to such a complex and hard-fought project. The architects listened carefully and supported us throughout the long process with initiative, innovation and reassurance” – Jane Jenkins, Bursur, CFCS
