Faulkner Browns gets green light for work at architect’s alma mater
Faulkner Browns Architects has been given planning to design new sports facilities at the £23,500 a year former school of Richard Rogers.
St John’s School in Leatherhead was founded in 1851 and 20 years later relocated from St John’s Wood in north London to its current Surrey home. Other former pupils include actor Nicholas Smith who starred in 1970s sitcom Are You Being Served?
The multi-million pound scheme will include a swimming pool and a dance studio.
Phase one of the project will be completed by October next year and includes installing a six lane, 25m pool as well as a teaching classroom and office space. The pool will also be used by other schools in the area as well as local swimming clubs.
