Yarm School have under gone a £20m upgrading and expansion of their Senior and Prep School sites. The School now includes a purpose built theatre and auditorium space with seats up to 800 people, a flexible stage studio theatre and adjacent Music Performance space. Furthermore, the project saw the existing dining hall relocated and kitchen facilities extended whilst the school’s sports facilities were also refurbished.
Our brief was to create modern welcoming spaces within the refurbishment and expansion of the new school, this included the new stage studio theatre and music performance spaces where acoustic properties and interference were also high priority. Daylight harvesting and absence controls were implemented throughout the scheme and the school also had an LED upgrade to the external lighting.
