The School is located in leafy Grange Road, a short walk from the centre of Cambridge and the College, at the heart of which sits the Chapel, home to the internationally renowned College Chapel Choir. The School site has undergone significant rebuilding or redevelopment in the last few years to ensure the facilities, layout and fabric of the buildings fully support the delivery of the School’s ethos.
The School occupies two sites, Byron House and Senior House, some 200 yards apart, across Grange Road from the extensive playing fields owned by and shared with St John’s College. At Byron House, the Junior Department houses about 120 pupils (about 40 per year in two co-educational classes) aged 4-6 and is also home to about 120 pupils (in three co-educational classes per year) in the 7-8 age range. The Senior House site houses boys and girls aged 9 - 13 (approximately 230 pupils in all).
Byron House provides outstanding facilities for 4-9 year olds, including specialist Music, Art/DT, Computing facilities, a Junior Library, Drama/Assembly Room, a Hall/Stage/Dining Room/Gymnasium, Individual and Small Group Teaching rooms. The Forest Garden has at its centre a circular teaching space and the Kindergarten enjoys Forest School Fridays in this specially designed spacious outdoor area.
The Senior House site itself has been completely redeveloped in recent years with bespoke classrooms, an outstanding library, a DT and computer control and graphics facility, two Science labs, a Drama studio, Music facilities, a multi-sports court, changing areas and excellent staff facilities. It also contains other specialist facilities such as the swimming pool, Music School, Chapel, theatre and gymnasium.
