Hall for All

Acland Burghley school is a celebrated example of Brutalist architecture in the heart of our community. The Assembly Hall with its unique hexagonal design was the jewel in the school’s crown. Designed to be a community and arts space for both students and the local community, it became known for showcasing excellence in drama, music & dance. Now, we’re embarking on a capital appeal to fund the renovation of the Hall and bring back this special place to the heart of our community – a Hall for All
