A leading Highgate independent school’s new building has won recognition at a prestigious awards ceremony.
The Charter Building, a new wing of Highgate School, was commended along with 33 other projects at the Civic Trust Awards on Friday.
The teaching building, which first opened its doors in September 2012, houses the school’s main entrance in North Road and provides 12 classrooms, a science laboratory, and an IT suite.
