The Great Hall, a versatile space to make your own


The main buildings at Talbot Heath were constructed in 1936 and designed by Hubert Worthington, a pupil of Edwin Lutyens. The ‘ new’ private school was the height of modernity and was the envy of all other schools in the area. No expense was spared and we still treasure the oak fittings and furniture from Heals.  Art Deco enthusiasts will notice the design motifs throughout the school; the animals that feature on the wrought iron staircases, balconies and weathervane are much loved features by all members of the school community.
