Saunders bags planning for girls’ school scheme

The existing single-storey extension at Sarah Bonnell School in east London

East London extension targets growing pupil numbers at historic secondary

Saunders Partnership Architects has won planning permission to extend a historic east London girls’ school with a new ground-floor dining room and first-floor music facility designed to cater for growing pupil numbers.

The project, at Sarah Bonnell School in Stratford, will see the upward extension of a recent addition to part of the school, and the introduction of a first-floor glazed link to its Edwardian host block. 

The state school was founded in the 18th century, and describes itself as among the oldest girls’ schools in the country. It moved to its current site in the 1970s.
