Demolition and Development at Belmont School

15 September 2021

The summer has been busy at Belmont School with the demolition of the Head’s House in readiness for the construction of the Aquileon Building. The building will form the hub for the growing Senior School and will provide six new classrooms, two double height Art Studios, an ICT suite, Photography Department, Performing Arts studio for Drama, Dance and Performing Arts, a Wellbeing Centre and Tutorial Rooms.   A new Head’s House will be built in a different location on the Belmont estate.

In August, Moon Hall School consolidated all of their operations onto their Reigate site releasing much needed space at Belmont and leading to the opening of The Grove in September.  Designated as a base for the Prep School pupils, The Grove is home to six classes of Years 3 to 5 pupils as well as a Junior Library, Junior ICT room, Outdoor Activities’ office, and other administration areas including a meeting space.

Belmont School has also expanded its minibus service in response to growing demand.  In September, the additional locations of Guildford, Tattenham Corner and Reigate were added alongside the usual destinations of Ripley, Horsham, Dorking and London.

Belmont School invites prospective parents to come and visit the School at one of its forthcoming Open Days:   Tuesday 2nd November at 10am for Early Years and the Prep School and Friday 5th November at 9.30am for the Senior School.
