The pupils' accommodation is located within the Manor House, the childhood home of Florence Nightingale. Many rooms have breathtaking views across the country estate and beyond to the New Forest National Park. 

The recently refurbished accommodation is arranged in small dorms across three floors and each area has brand new shower and toilet facilities, finished to a high standard. 

The house boasts three glorious co-ed communal areas. These comprise of a games room with air hockey, fuse ball machine, stereo and piano for music practice.  The fully fitted kitchen is used in the evening for snacks and where the relaxed Saturday continental brunch is served. The brand new 'boarders lounge' is used for house assemblies and tutor’s parties and for relaxing watching TV (to include Sky, Netflix and a selection of DVDs). It is the hub of the house on a Saturday night for 'Movie Mania'. 
In each of the separate girls and boy’s areas there also common rooms where the boarders can have a more relaxed time watching TV (or playing PlayStation in their pyjamas!)  The boarders have access to a well-stocked library within the boarding house and their own ICT suite, providing ample resources for studying as well as relaxing and pursuing other projects.
