Refectory & Hub Area
A lovely light filled room which can cater for up to 270 people with additional space available for a dance floor and band. A perfect venue for holding a ball or large charity dinner during holiday periods.
The Refectory can also be opened up onto the recently refurbished Hub, which offers a range of relaxed informal seating areas.
The Old Library was built in 1908 as part of the Centenary celebrations on the site of the old 2nd Form room and the Girls' Reading Room. It has changed little over the years. It went out of active use as a library in the 1990s when a new library was set up. The bookshelves are original, as are some of the books. The Old Library is an ideal venue for holding meetings.

The Junior School is situated across from the main school site and is self-contained within its own grounds. It is surrounded by playing fields and offers separate parking. The Junior School Hall is a spacious light filled hall, which opens out onto a small outdoor amphitheatre.
