Chessmann were responsible for directing renovation and building work at the Grade 1 listed Elizabethan manor house and estate, which was converted into specialist education facilities for children and young adults with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.
In our role as Project Manager and Quantity Surveyors for The Priory Group, we helped transform the house and surrounding site into a residential and day school. Facilities included 110 en suite bedrooms, a sports hall, swimming pool and an equestrian centre. The school focuses on taking an active approach to teaching, concentrating on the development of physical fitness, whole body coordination and emotional stability. It also incorporates fully equipped classrooms for specialist subjects.
