Westbrook Hay Prep School was founded in 1892 and is located in Hemel Hempstead, England. It is a co-educational independent school which educates children from 3 –13 years old.

The scheme at Westbrook Hay School was the delivery of a new assembly hall, the structure provided a new reception, additional teaching rooms and a high-quality, tiered seating theatre to the ground floor. The first floor housed further teaching rooms, conference areas and additional access to the upper tiered seating.

Works initiated with the demolition of the existing building as well as the clearance of the site, before the construction could commence. Access to the site for the duration of the works was via temporary roadways, which was protected with fencing panels and netting, to ensure the upmost safety of all pupils, staff and the general public.

The site is within the centre of the North campus with existing buildings adjacent to each elevation.
