All accommodation for students selecting the English or Science, Maths and Economics course is on campus; students selecting the University preparation programme are accommodated in one of our off-campus boarding residences in the village of Acton Burnell.
We continue to invest in our accommodation for students with upgrades to existing boarding residences and a new boarding residence. Summer School use 11 of the on campus residences which are strictly all boys or all girls:
- Bell House
- Elisabeth House
- Garden View
- Main House
- Old Walls
- Orchard House
- Paul House
- Wrekin House
Bedrooms are single occupancy, comfortable and well furnished. We have a small number of double rooms on request. Each room is fully furnished with a single bed, wardrobe, study desk, chair and wash basin. Students have access to shared bathroom facilities with a maximum of four other students. Rooms for older students (generally 16+) are en suite benefiting from their own shower, wash basin and toilet. Each student bedroom has a security safe for personal possessions. The safes are large enough to store wallets, purses, mobile phones, electronic tablets, laptops etc. Each student will be responsible for their safe and room key. An electrical adaptor for use in the UK will be required for hair dryers, straighteners, mobile phone charges etc.
Staff are fully residential, with female teachers living in the girls’ buildings and male teachers living in the boys’ buildings so students receive supervision and guidance at all times during the night. Younger students benefit from a Matron who will be in the residence throughout the day.
Student laundry is done once a week and returned the same day to boarding residences with all items washed, dried and ironed. Students are given laundry bags and a laundry slip by their house parent the night before their laundry day. Students are requested to leave their bags in the designated areas in the morning before breakfast.
Students are expected to keep their rooms tidy. Rooms are cleaned every weekday with bedding changed once a week. Communal areas, bathrooms and showers are also cleaned every weekday, and once at weekends.
