The residences are in different buildings all just 2-10 minutes walk from the centre facilities. There are up to 150 comfortable residential beds in good-sized rooms, with separate buildings for boys and girls.
All rooms are shared but they vary between the residential houses. Most are twins only, some are rooms for up to 6 students, and a few have large dorm rooms with up to 10 beds. All bathrooms and showers are shared.
All meals are served in the magnificent mediaeval beamed dining hall. There is a wide choice of hot and cold food and a vegetarian option for every meal. Please inform us if you have special dietary requirements. Packed lunches are provided on excursion days. At bedtimes, there is also a late snack (soft drinks, cookies and cake).
The food merits special mention: the last official school inspection judged the food to be “exceptional”. Meals are nutritious, balanced and appetising. A full English cooked breakfast is available every day and a selection of hot dishes, in addition to the salad bar, is offered at lunch and supper time every day.
We recommend that students bring around £80 per week for souvenirs, gifts, snacks and drinks etc.
At residential camps for younger students, we strongly recommend that money is given to the ‘the school bank’, where we will keep it safe. Students will be able to obtain their money from the ‘the school bank’ at regular intervals.
