Art and Design Centre – consultation results

The school is grateful for feedback on the Art & Design Centre plans and as a result many aspects have changed. In keeping with Bedales’ reputation for creativity, the building will represent the best in arts education – and it will now be more compact, maximise teaching space, have lighter cladding and be set further from Steephurst. There will be a smaller Facilities building next to the Centre with the bulk of maintenance activities moved to a new yard elsewhere. Planning permission is expected in January 2014 and the goal is to open the Centre in Autumn 2016. For further information on the Art & Design Centre project, please contact: Veryan Grant, Head of Development or visit the website.
