Churcher’s College is an Independent day school with sites in Petersﬁeld and Liphook in Hampshire with over a 1000 students.
Lewis & Hickey were appointed to rationalise the layout of the existing infant and middle school in Liphook and to update the associated classrooms and support facilities. The School wanted to use this opportunity to emphasise its commitment to innovative thinking and quality in educational design while retaining its history and core teaching values.
Two new distinct entrances were created for infants and middle school pupils; with the former connecting the existing old school house with the new reception class. The latter leads into a double height circulation space visually connecting Year 3 and 4 classrooms with light spilling from above. The upper ﬂoors have large windows with views within the building and out into the surrounding countryside.
The space has been occupied since September 2015 and the teachers and students are very pleased and proud of the resultant new facilities.
