Queen Anne’s School was founded in 1894 and situated in Caversham, Reading. It is an independent boarding and day school for girls aged 11 to 18 years old.

Feltham have worked with Queen Anne’s School in numerous projects over the years and were delighted to be contracted again to construct the new music facilities. The goal was to provide a space within the main school building for new Music facilities, by converting the old dining areas.

The works were carried out in two phases, between January 2018 and July 2019. The scope of the works included structural alterations (to alter the configuration), new services throughout (including specialist AV), the infill of courtyard areas and all internal finishes. The completed scheme provides acoustically insulated practice rooms, two larger performance rooms, a new main school entrance foyer and ancillary office and amenity spaces.

The project was carried out within an occupied building and the site was segregated from the live school areas and pupils with temporary screens and separate accesses to ensure safety measures were ahered to.
