  • Years 12 to 13 (age 16-18) have single rooms for study time and personal space
  • All rooms include a wardrobe and desk
  • Most rooms include a wash basin
  • WiFi internet with strict access controls
  • Showers and toilets for each corridor

Common rooms

Each floor of our boarding accommodation has a common room where students can meet in the evenings to enjoy a hot chocolate and toast before lights out!

We also use this space at weekends to play board and computer games, enjoy film evenings and to come together to celebrate birthdays and special occasions. We also have a mixed common room, where in the evenings, students can socialise and relax.
