Our complex includes dining facilities, lecture theatres and good-quality accommodation. 

The School has two purpose-built teaching theatres that can both take up to 60 delegates. These theatres can be set up in a variety of formats to facilitate lectures/ presentations, or conference-style meetings. 

You'll also have access to the extensive sports facilities provided by the Oriam, Centre for Sport and Exercise.

Our teaching rooms, or 'pods', have six fully-equipped break-out/ syndicate rooms for up to ten students each and are equipped with flip charts, white-boards and WiFi. Each has its own separate lounge for coffee and refreshments.


Accommodation is a two-minute walk away, in the Paul Stobart building; a complex of 30 ensuite bedrooms located on three floors, it is serviced by a lift and stairs.

All rooms have king-sized bed, internet access and ample desk space for private study. A private balcony or patio provides the ideal space for quiet reflection after a demanding day of seminars and lectures.
