Situated in over 20 acres of beautiful rural grounds in Buckinghamshire, our facilities include an indoor swimming pool, new sports hall, tennis courts and football pitches. The school is only 40 minutes' ride to the central London. All courses are located in our recently renovated building. The building accommodates a number of specialist art studios that are made available during after-school hours for students wanting to do homework or personal projects. Extracurricular workshops also take place here. We provide our boarders with a supportive and nurturing environment while preparing them for independent living. Boarders have their own single room with en suite facilities, as well as a study area and plenty of storage. A weekly cleaning service is provided so students are expected to keep their room tidy. Laundry facilities are located on each floor. The school environment is monitored by boarding and teaching staff to ensure each student receives personal care and support. Boarding staff are at hand to help with school and personal matters, and act as the main point of contact between the school and parents.
