The new block will be arranged on two floors providing a media room and fine art space on the first floor and Sixth Form study and common room centre, and theatre workshop on ground level.
The existing art room will be demolished to make way for the proposed new theatre and a new art department will be created within a purpose built block to the north of the Markova Theatre (Lower Lizzies), where a new space will also serve as the stage scenery and props workshop.
The new studios are located at the far end of Upper Lizzies embedded in a wooded setting and adjoining the existing school courtyard buildings (behind the Clock House) and the backstage accommodation of the proposed new theatre.
The theatre will be designed specifically for dance and musical theatre training and productions and, consequently, will have a much larger stage area and wing space to suit these art forms than the Markova Theatre, which will be dedicated to drama and music. The new theatre will contain foyer spaces that will also serve as informal teaching spaces and recreational areas for pupils, while backstage dressing room spaces will serve both the new theatre and the new performance studios.
The five new 10m x 12m studios are arranged side by side within two wings, accessed by a broad corridor situated on the south side of the building.
