St Augustine's Priory

St Augustine’s Priory
Ealing, London
Architect and Lead Consultant

Paul Murphy Architects were appointed through an invited tender process for the reconfiguration and extension of this independent girl’s Catholic school, to create a three-form entry, for children between ages 3-18.

The school is located on a magnificent 4.8ha south facing site, which is designated as Metropolitan Open Land and the original former convent buildings are locally listed. 

Our proposals involve a multi-phase approach which creates a new “atrium link block”, around which new teaching spaces are arranged, together with a new learning resource centre. This intervention will provide all of the growth needed in one phase, improve access to existing classrooms and provide a new heart to the school. 

A new multi-purpose sports hall with changing facilities forms a second phase along with new drama facilities. The third phase involves the reconfiguration of the existing school to improve and rationalize existing teaching and staff spaces.
