Westfield School, Newcastle upon Tyne

Northumberland Education Trust
Portfolio master planning and rationalisation

Squires Barnett have been appointed by the Northumberland Education Trust since 2012 with the primary aim to solidify the position of the school and enable it to continue to deliver education to its pupils at the highest standards. To allow this, Squires Barnett have developed a cohesive estate-wide masterplan and rationalisation process which, to date, has seen the complete refurbishment of the Senior House, a grand Victorian villa set within the Gosforth Conservation Area.

The second phase of the proposals have been submitted for planning approval and will see the development of a state-of-the-art gymnasium and a conversion of the existing sports hall into a dramatic double-height arts hub and general teaching space.
