Venue Hire



Update 15 December 2020 

Our Facility Hire operation remains closed at present.

Naturally we’re sorry that we are unable to make  our facilities available to you at the moment. As we hope you will understand, our priority is to provide a safe and secure venue for our students and staff during term-time. The SchoolHire booking system for 2020/21 will remain closed for now but please check back here for updates.

Further details for new and existing customers:

Existing Facility Hire Customers:
We will contact you via email as soon as a provisional reopening date has been agreed and you will be given priority to rebook “same-slot” sessions from previous years before we open-up availability to new customers.

New enquiries:
If you are interested in booking our facilities for the first time, please register your interest by emailing Donna Owens ( We will then contact you on a first-come, first-served basis once our facilities become available to book again.
