Our Houses

Avondale & Silverdale

Our boarding community is housed in two Edwardian homes: Avondale and Silverdale.

Silverdale is the larger house which naturally splits into two wings of ‘East’ and ‘West’, which are linked in the middle by communal areas.

Each house is vertically integrated with a mix of ages, which helps to create a family-like atmosphere with everyone looking out for each other.
