Food and Accommodation

MEALS: all three meals each day are included in the residential fee and individual dietary requirements can usually be catered for at no extra charge. Non-residents may bring their own packed meals onto the site and/or they have the option to eat with us on a “pay as you go” basis per-meal (exact cost to be announced nearer the time)

U18 ACCOMMODATION: accommodation for U18 students is in single-sex boarding houses, typically in shared bedrooms (almost all doubles and triples) between students of similar if not identical age, with communal washing facilities. Each house has its own laundry and kitchen facilities (with tea, coffee, milk and cordial provided) and at least one living / TV room. Requests to share with friends will be invited before final rooming allocation.

O18 ACCOMMODATION: O18s can usually expect to be in a double room (with a student of the same sex and of a similar age) or possibly a single, again with communal boarding house facilities. Single rooms are allocated firstly based on any medical issues, then on the basis of age (as far as the room distribution in the different houses enables) with the oldest students at the front of the queue. (Based on previous years’ age ranges it would be very surprising if anyone over the age of 25 did not get a single but there can be no guarantees until quite near the start.) Adults have from time to time found they have preferred to investigate local accommodation and consider the non-resident option but the boarding house accommodation is pretty comfortable! Requests to share with friends will be invited before final rooming allocation. The houses may be single-sex or mixed, depending on overall numbers of each. If they are mixed, we do our best to have at least single-sex corridors and communal facilities if not whole floors. (Again, this depends on overall numbers.)

FACILITIES: these include Tennis and Squash courts and a swimming pool. Use of all these is included within your course fee. The town is just a few minutes’ walk away and the Summer School runs its own tuck shop.
