The Beeches

The Beeches was purpose built in 2013 to provide first rate spacious and modern accommodation for our senior pupils. Twin and three bedded rooms with en-suite shower facilities along with a large common room with a mini kitchen area, gives our girls in year 9 and above a place to chill out with their friends and unwind at the end of the day.
