Facilities

Do not be deceived by the obviously vintage architecture of much of our school buildings – behind the historic façade students are able to access well-equipped specialist teaching accommodation, including a total of 14 Science laboratories, 5 technology  workshops, 6 ICT suites and the full range of specialist rooms for the Arts. The Chatham site includes excellent facilities for Sport & PE with pitches and a modern astro-turf. In addition to two school libraries, students are also welcome to use the ultra-modern  refurbished Ramsgate Library, right next door to Clarendon House.

The most recent refurbishment was Phase 1 of the conversion of the Cavendish Building to a Sixth Form Centre. The new Sixth Form Common Room has state-of-the-art informal study facilities including both desktops, full wi-fi access and secure portable device recharging lockers – and internet café, to match the standard of any university Student Union.

Exciting plans to build a new STEM block (nine Science laboratories, four Design Technology studios and four Mathematics rooms) and a new Sports Hall on the Chatham House site are being prepared and it is hoped within the next few years to have the new development completed.

A £2m grant from the Department of Education will enable the school to completely refurbish the main Chatham House and Clarendon House buildings.
