The School

Sevenoaks School is an innovative and academically outstanding coeducational, independent boarding and day school for over 1,000 students aged 11-18. Since its foundation in 1432, the School campus has evolved organically on a sloping site in a Conservation Area located between Sevenoaks and Knole Park. The campus currently has a number of listed buildings, as well as more recent award-winning additions.

The Project

We are going to build a new Science and Technology Centre in order to bring the scientific disciplines together in an inspiring new facility.

In addition, we wish to create a new Sixth Form Centre, to provide social and study space for the Sixth Form, comprising over 40% of the school. Our Sixth Form is virtually unique in the UK, as all 420 students study the IB Diploma programme and proceed to the world’s best universities.

The Architect

Sevenoaks School Foundation, which will carry out the project on behalf of the School, is seeking an architect who can take the School’s vision and create two buildings that will assist in continuing to develop a lively and creative learning environment for Sevenoaks students.
