State of the art Science and Technology facilities at a leading independent school

Our role

  • We provided expert Planning and Heritage services from the pre-application stage, successfully gaining planning permission for this huge investment for the school.
  • The project is part of Haileybury’s 15-year campus masterplan to revolutionise its teaching offer in science and technology, sports and performance.
  • The school has a wealth of listed buildings and pre-application discussions therefore included negotiations with Historic England.
  • The site is within the Green Belt and key to the success of the project was justifying the scheme in this context.

Haileybury SciTech


  • Local authority resourcing issues proved challenging for the project programme, but our local contacts and good working relationship with the council and consultees aided a successful outcome.
  • The exceptional SciTech buildings will be accessible to Haileybury’s partner secondary academy, Haileybury Turnford, alongside outreach programmes for local prep and other secondary schools.
  • The buildings will house globally renowned research facilities including the prestigious Stan-X project led by Stanford University, California.
  • The courtyard design by Hopkin Architects successfully links the existing curtilage listed science building with new sustainable facilities promoting better connectivity across the STEM subjects.
