Case Study

Dance and Drama studios at Hendon School

Building type: Studios
Project price: £1060k
Completion date: 2019

Speaking at the new studio opening Craig Maguire, Acting Head, stated, ‘Dance and drama are a central part of Hendon School’s offering. Our talented students can now utilise this wonderful building to practice and further develop their skills and unleash their creativity.’

Hendon School is a popular and highly subscribed secondary school rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and dance and drama are strong. Existing facilities were aging so a they needed a new eco building to house twin dance and drama studios.

The project was partly funded by ESFA’s Condition Improvement Fund. Barker Associates assisted the school with the application process and were appointed to develop and manage the project.

The budget was tight so an economical design solution was required without compromising on quality and style.

TG Escapes were selected to produce a bespoke design, reduce the onsite construction period with modular units manufactured off site, and to minimise disruption to the operation of the school.

Jonathan Kamya, Deputy Head explained that TG Escapes stood out because we were very approachable and solution focused.

The build took 6 months, and was handed over on time for the beginning of the school term.

'As educators, apart from the need for extra teaching space for our students we needed the professionalism, experience and expertise of TG escapes to build our Dance and Drama studios.They were very helpful.'
