Pre-Prep, Monkton Combe School

The new Pre-Prep at Monkton Combe School, Bath, sits on a challenging site with significant structural, planning and ecological issues. Part of the site lies within the Green Belt and is home to an established community of badgers and a nationally important colony of bats, protected under European law. The design includes a nursery, new classrooms, home economics room, function room and a multi-activity hall. A key feature of the building is the central courtyard garden which allows free flowing access for all EYFS pupils into a safe protected and fun external classroom.
