Claremont Fan Court School is a private school situated in Esher, Surrey and is located within an historic estate with extraordinary landscapes.
First built in 1774, this stunning building was once a mansion house home to Queen Victoria. Sir John Vanbrugh, Capability Brown and William Kent have all contributed to the architectural history of the site over the years.
Part of the school’s long term plan is to develop the whole site over 20 years, to improve facilities, refocus the campus and reinforce historic settings. The first stage of the development is underway with well-known architects Fletcher Crane heading the design and creation of the new Science & Technology buildings. The first phase of the new development provides thirteen new teaching spaces and 8 purpose-built science classrooms. The other spaces include a design and technology studio and workshop, a state of the art food and nutrition classroom along with creative textile spaces.
Further plans include a new library, music school, kitchen, sixth form, humanities building and swimming pool along with restoration work to the listed mansion, belvedere, and white cottage buildings.
We’re delighted to have worked with Fletcher Crane on this project where we designed, manufactured, and supplied our Zircon 200-70 expanded mesh for the external façade of the building. Our mesh was powder coated in bronze and welded into the frames for ease of install on site. The bronzed powder coated aluminium creates an outstanding and eye catching look against the dark brick.
