Bromsgrove School

Bromsgrove School, one of the county’s leading independent boarding / day schools, undertook a major redevelopment of their sports facilities and boarding houses; part of the project brief was to enhance the entrances, and create quality external areas befitting such an establishment.
  • Illman Young commissioned to develop detailed design and working drawings for hard and soft external works.
  • Formal avenues created along roads, with sweeping woodland paths through  existing wooded areas.
  • Formal plaza created, framed by trees and planting.
  • Difficult level issues brought opportunity to create stepped terrace, a hub in the      centre of the campus.
  • Mix of formal planting to plaza spaces, with softer grasses and perennials to the boarding houses.
  • High quality materials and planting specified throughout with use of instant hedging for immediate impact.
“We at Bromsgrove School could not be more delighted with the imagination, empathy and quality of Illman Young. Innovation and flair were married to a deep understanding of the campus and its centuries of tradition so that the result was both contemporary yet quintessentially Bromsgrove.”
Mr Christopher Edwards, Head Teacher, Bromsgrove School
