CASE STUDY

The Royal Masonic School for Girls


The Royal Masonic School for Girls in Hertfordshire is a historic independent girls’ school founded in 1788. The school building was constructed in 1934 on the 315 acre Rickmansworth Park, and is home to around 100 boarders who live within the school’s three boarding houses.

Having worked on a number of classrooms at the school, TaskSpace were invited to improve the common room spaces as part of an ongoing phased project. 

It was important for the girls to have somewhere comfortable to relax with friends outside the classroom – a space that would complement the newly fitted academic facilities elsewhere on the site. 

The new common rooms were originally dormitories and, though spacious with lots of natural light, were not popular with students due to their dated look and uncomfortable seating.
