Extension and development of historic Haileybury school.


Beacon were first appointed to help secure planning and listed building consent for the extension of the grade II listed Allenby House, a boarding house for pupils. Following pre-application advice, we prepared the Heritage Statement to support the applications which were granted in March 2011.

Later in 2011, we were appointed to assist in proposals to enclose Grubber Court which is part of the main Grade II* listed range of the college. We again helped the architects in gaining planning and listed building consent through liaison with English Heritage and preparation of the Heritage Statement.

Continuing our association with the college, we were appointed in 2012 to assist with gaining consent for further alterations and extensions to the main Grade II* listed quadrangle of the college – Kipling and Batten House. The single storey extension to this boarding house was granted permission in July 2012 and amended later in the year.

We were appointed again in 2012 to assist with proposals for extension and alteration of Hailey House and Bradby Hall, both Grade II listed buildings. The scheme involved demolition of later, less significant, buildings between the principal building ranges and replacement with new 3-storey accommodation containing teaching and residential spaces. A glazed atrium to the Music School also formed part of the proposals. Planning permission and listed building consent was gained in April 2013.

2014 saw our appointment to assist with an extension of Lawrence House to provide additional pupil accommodation. Further developments at the school were mooted and Beacon were appointed to work with Studio E Architects to prepare a masterplan for the site supported by a strategic heritage appraisal of the buildings. Out of this work, we gained planning permission for a new Humanities Centre for the school. We have recently secured listed building consent for alterations to the 1960s part of the Grade II* listed building. Work continues on the development of new sports pitches and repairing of the main quad.


Planning permission and listed building consents secured. Ongoing advice provided on planning and heritage issues.
