Fryer Boarding House, Leighton Park School, Reading


As part of our strategic masterplan for Leighton Park School, the decision was made to relocate the junior boarders from the current vertical house system to a boarding house of their own, leading to the remodelling of the junior day house. Accommodating 25 boarding spaces for students and associated staff residences, the house is split into boys and girls wings with combined social lounge and kitchen facilities.

The dormitories sleep three to four, each with an ensuite shower room. The design addresses opportunities for future phased refurbishment, including enclosing the external courtyard to create improved internal social space for both junior, day, and boarding pupils.
