Education · Conservation
The newly refurbished Queen Mary House is a boarding house at King Edward’s in Witley. OSP Architecture were principal Architects for the project which was formally opened by Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Gloucester (GCVO) in September 2015.
Queen Mary House represents one of the school’s most iconic buildings, enjoying a 148 year history, having been built as a convalescent home in 1867. The house has even featured in a number of TV and film dramas including Agatha Christie’s Poirot.
Its £1 million of refurbishment and investment was undertaken during a five month programme and was complete in time for the new term in September 2015. It now accommodates a co-educational boarding house and day house for the Lower School. Up to 40 boarders and 40 day pupils can be accommodated in a building which offers changing rooms, a prep room, matron facilities and four flats for adult accommodation.
