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 facilities. 

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

studying as well as relaxing and pursuing other projects.
