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 traditional accommodation is
arranged in dorms of a variety of sizes 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 pool table, fuse ball
machine, stereo and piano for music practice. The fully fitted kitchen is
used in the evening for snacks and is where the relaxed Saturday continental
breakfast is served; complete with comfy sofa and those all-important Xbox
The 'boarders lounge' is used for house meetings and tutor’s
parties as well as for relaxing, playing board games and card games, or watching
TV (including Sky, Netflix and a selection of DVDs). It is the hub of the house
on a Saturday or Sunday night for 'Movie Mania'.
In each of the separate girls’ and boys’ areas there are 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
as well as relaxing and pursuing other projects.
