The Upper, Middle and Lower school divisions operate in their own buildings, each of which is designed to meet students' academic and developmental needs. Chigwell Close, the open space between the Lower School and the main building, is an outdoor classroom, a place where students can learn science, write poetry, play, explore or simply enjoy a peaceful interlude.
Student players and performers have access to resources that match their talents.
