Feltonfleet is an independent preparatory school housed in a range of Neo-Gothic buildings, generally Grade 2 Listed and set within the Green Belt. Mackenzie Wheeler prepared a Masterplan to guide the development of the school over the next 5 years, including replacing the existing 15 metre outdoor pool with a new 25 metre indoor pool.

The new building is located on unused land between the original pool and a later sports hall, linking the hall with the pool, gym and changing rooms to create an impressive sports centre. The building is formed with a shallow zinc roof following the slope of the site and the old brick boundary wall on the roadside elevation while the other elevations are entirely glazed and overlook the gardens and playing fields to the south, shaded by a spectacular screen of large mature trees.
