The Godolphin and Latymer School is a prestigious independent girls’ day school in Hammersmith, London. Built in 1861, it was originally established as a boarding school for boys. It wasn’t until 1905 that it became the independent day school for girls it is renowned for being in the present day. Roofglaze is proud to have assisted them in making the most of daylight for their new sports centre.

Overall, the project itself involved the construction of a new two storey sports hall, along with an adjoining single storey building that contains changing rooms, fitness suites, dance studios, offices, storage and other ancillary accommodation. This project was undertaken whilst day-to-day educational life continued as normal, so logistics and safety were key challenges.


Roofglaze was tasked with providing as much beneficial natural daylight as possible to the new sports hall complex. As you can see from the project images, this was achieved via the supply and installation of 12 Fixed (double glazed) Rectangular Flatglass rooflights. Also apparent from these photos is the attractive solution that these rooflights provide, both internally and externally.

With this new sports centre being a facility for use in all seasons, it is vital that the rooflights specified here were able to match these requirements. Fortunately, with our in-house manufactured range of Flatglass rooflights having been tested and rated to A4 for Air Permeability and R7 for Water-tightness, the highest possible performance levels are guaranteed all year round.
