The project comprises a reorganisation of a central London school to provide a new-build boarding house for the choristers which links an existing 1960s Grade II* school building on one side, and a Grade I listed church tower to the other, as well as renovation of parts of the existing buildings to provide staff flats, 3 new classrooms, a refurbished and extended dining hall, and an IT room. The existing playground has also been reconfigured and extended with a new play structure under the new boarding house and additional play area on the roof of the dining hall extension.
