The main buildings that make up our Junior, Senior and Boarding areas were designed and built in 1936, by a pupil of Edwin Lutyens. Their Modernist design combines style with stature and warmth. The striking red brick structures were designed specifically for Talbot Heath, with the school motif and motto to be found throughout. Stylish wrought iron balconies with animal motifs, as well as lunettes designed by Eric Gill, go hand in hand with our oak interiors, quads and cloisters. The school was furnished by Heals in 1936 and retains many of its original features. Visitors comment on the particular character of the learning environment that combines space, light, warmth and tradition.
Alongside our heritage features we have many state of the art facilities such as our large sports hall and fitness complex, astro pitches, running track, tennis and netball courts, swimming pool, designated Music centre with recital room, drama studios, Science centre, art studios, Creative arts centre, digital language laboratory and extensive school libraries. These facilities are available to pupils in both the Junior and Senior school.
All of our pupils have access to extensive woodland learning and play environments.
Our most unusual feature is our 100ft long air raid shelter from WW2, that has been refurbished in line with original photographs and drawings to become a ‘living history’ resource for the school, as well as the local community.
Our exciting new ‘ STEAM HUB’ focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics, allows us to extend our groundbreaking interdisciplinary approach to learning. Dedicated to interdisciplinary learning with a creative focus, the STEAM HUB is the heart of our vision for the future.
