NEW buildings at King’s High School in Warwick have been shortlisted for a prestigious architectural award.

The historic girls’ school moved from the town centre to a new state-of-the-art purpose built home last September, alongside Warwick School and Warwick Preparatory School, on Myton Road.

It was designed by Nicholas Hare Architects and has been shortlisted in the RIBA West Midlands Awards.

Headmaster Richard Nicholson said: “It is testament to the amazing work which goes into creating such inspirational spaces for our students.

“Our extraordinary new home marks what we believe to be one of the largest investment in girls’ education that the UK has seen in decades; our girls deserve nothing less.”

RIBA West Midlands director Rebecca Smith added: “It was a very tough decision for the judges to form the shortlist. It is encouraging to see the high standard of architecture and I congratulate the architects, clients and wider teams involved in creating these projects which serve to enrich our communities.”

Nicholas Hare Architects is an award-winning practice, renowned for their expertise in sustainable buildings.

Its work includes projects for Sadler’s Wells, Glyndebourne, the Royal Opera House, St Paul’s School, the University of Oxford and both the David Attenborough Building and James Dyson Building for the University of Cambridge.

King’s High School’s new home has been shortlisted for a prestigious architectural award.
