About the building

St Clement Danes School is located in Drury Lane, the heart of central London, in a building erected just over a century ago. We celebrated the centenary of the present school building in 2007.

Whilst the school retains many of its original features, a lot of work has been done to guarantee that the building is fit for twenty-first century education.

In 2007 the school hall was totally refurbished and many of the original features of the building, such as the wood-block floors have been renovated. A brand new kitchen was also installed.

In the following year the whole school was redecorated. The Information and Communication Technology suite was also completely updated with all the latest computer technology and a further range of groups rooms were established to provide spaces for children to work intensively with adults.

In the summer of 2010, the ground floor of the building was remodelled to provide a new reception area which allows more space for parents and the first stage of a lift installation took place, making the school truly accessible for all.

If you wander through our school today you will go through classrooms that are light and airy, with comfort cooling that improves the working environment. You will see teachers using the latest technologies to support learning.
