After acquisition in 2017, PHBS has completed several developments of internal renovations including a new atrium which was completed in November 2018.

Our aim of the new development is to provide our students with best international learning experience in the UK for the value of their future. We also aim at taking the opportunity of this new development for improving both the view of its existing buildings and the sustainable use of this historical site.

Motivated by our aims, the UK Campus of PHBS at Boars Hill has been under consultation with MICA and Edgars to apply planning permission for the proposed new student accommodation, new dining hall, new library and new teaching hall. The new proposed design can be seen more details in a dedicated website on our planning application at: www.phbs-consultation.com. The new design will ensure the integrity of the original building and the history of the site to be enhanced.

We are looking forward to your supporting to this new exciting development opportunity for further improvement of this historical site of education.

We are a credible Institution in committing to protect culture heritage and improve the sustainability of the historical site for education
