Kensington Prep also received a commendation in the award category for pupil experience.

Entries for the awards included multi-million pound projects from large institutions including universities and colleges so Ken Prep made a particularly strong showing, winning against such stiff competition.

Claire Raines was also asked to lead a workshop at the Estates conference explaining the power and benefits of the Creating Spaces for Growing Minds programme with Nick Mirchandani, Director of ArchitecturePLB, the architects involved.
