Established in 1910, Christ Church Grammar School is currently a Pre-Primary to Year 12 Anglican day and boarding school for boys in Perth, Western Australia. The new Preparatory School is an exciting and long-awaited project for the School community that will provide a premium state-of-the-art teaching and learning environment for boys. Accommodation for Pre-kindergarten and Kindergarten is also included in the program, a new offering by Christ Church.
A core goal of the project was to consolidate and reduce the physical footprint of the existing Preparatory School which is currently dispersed across the campus. The new development will unify all the existing Preparatory School learning spaces into a single building configured over three levels with general learning areas on the lowest and upper-most levels, separated by a middle plane of administrative and specialist learning spaces.
A key feature of the form and arrangement of the new Preparatory School is the central Innovation Hub. Sited within a large undercover play space this sculptural element houses Technology, Research and Innovation spaces.
The new Preparatory School will reflect the diversity of the learning community and will be a modern, functional, efficient learning space that reflects the School’s values and captures the vitality of early years’ education.
