Hopkins Architects’ design for new teaching and sports facilities at South Hampstead High School (Girls’ Day School Trust), was granted planning permission by the London Borough of Camden in January 2011.

The new facilities include a new school entrance building, classrooms, library, music school, indoor sports hall and external netball court. The development transforms and rebuilds existing school buildings to create a coherent overall campus, incorporating new and old fabric.

Having occupied its present site for over 120 years, this represents a significant step in securing the school’s long term future and maintaining the outstanding standards of teaching that have made it the leading school in Camden and placed it in the top ten academic schools in the country.

The development will also improve the School’s sustainability performance, making it an exemplar of sustainable school design. The aim is to achieve a 95% improvement on the school’s current energy consumption, with a resulting annual saving of 45 tonnes of carbon. In addition, renewable technologies will contribute 20% of the school’s energy demand. All of these initiatives will qualify the scheme for a BREEAM Excellent rating.
