In September 2002 the completion of LeVan Hall meant a new era of architecture and increased capacity for learning at TCS. The impressive theatre and music building continues to be a focal point on campus.
While preserving the School's unique architectural heritage, LeVan Hall incorporates the latest communication and presentation technologies giving Trinity College School resources unmatched by any other independent school in Canada.
Renovated in 2010 to convert the academic hall into a state-of-the-art performing arts theatre, the Dick and Jane LeVan Theatre now includes additional seating, improved sightlines for the audience and enhancements to the acoustical and lighting systems.
Five sophisticated classrooms with the latest technology, including wireless LAN access and video-conferencing capability, provide TCS students with unparalleled learning opportunities within a technology based setting.
With three principal rooms, a computerized lab for composition and eight private practice studios, the School's exceptional music programme has access to enviable resources.
A drama classroom that doubles as a backstage area nicely accomodates the School's increasingly popular drama programme and the curriculum's inclusion of technological aspects such as lighting, sound and special effects. The stage is also dual-purpose; with a 2,000 square foot sprung floor, it functions as a dance studio.
The R. Samuel McLaughlin Art Gallery, located in the foyer of LeVan Hall, showcases the outstanding artwork of TCS students.
Visual Arts Wing
Opened in the fall of 2011 and located between LeVan Hall and the Ernest Howard Squash Courts, the nearly 10,000 square feet visual arts wing was designed to include several “green” building features and consists of two studios on the main level, with additional studio and classroom space on the lower level.
Studio and art history courses had been offered for more than three decades in an adapted and limited space in the Junior School’s Boulden House. However, with the completion of the new visual arts wing, teachers and students now have access to purpose built studio and teaching spaces, nearly 60% larger than the previous studio space.
