A new Boarding House, the next phase of Burrell Foley Fischer’s masterplan for Tring Park School for the Performing Arts is now on site. This is the next stage in the school’s development plan, which began with Park Studios, five new build studios for dance and performing arts, set within the historic context of Registered Parks and Gardens and Grade II* listed buildings in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Announcing the news on their website the school commented: “Over a decade ago, the school’s governors recognised that it needed to invest in facilities to keep it at the leading edge of performing arts schools for the next century. Recent alumni have benefited from the award-winning Park Studios, which opened in 2011 to great acclaim, and transformed the life of the school. The new master plan, which consists of three main phases, aims to further enhance the school experience for future talented students.
The first phase – which started in January 2018 - is a building consisting of three floors plus a lower ground floor, which will contain a state-of-the-art boarding house for 70 pupils, six academic and vocational teaching spaces, a theatre workshop and other valuable pupil facilities. This exciting new building is due to open in September 2019.”
