At Claremont, accommodation is arranged in 2 boarding houses which are located a short drive from the school campus.
One of the boarding houses (Clyde House) has many single ensuite bedrooms, the other (Pyke House) is situated in the centre of Battle next to the historic Abbey, offering opportunities for students to experience life in a small, typically British town.
Each house has a common room for students to relax in, a kitchen and a dining room. Students will eat their breakfast in the boarding house each morning before leaving for school, which is a short drive away.
Bede’s staff are residential and live and sleep in the same boarding houses as the students. They are available 24 hours a day to deal with any problems that may arise, even in the middle of the night. Each house has a dedicated House Parent who is responsible for the smooth running of the house and for students’ comfort and well-being.
There are daily house registers and meetings to ensure all students are present and aware of the day’s schedule. There is also a noticeboard in each house for information and messages. A laundry service, overseen by the House Parent, is offered to students at least twice per week and is included in the fee. Every week, an unannounced fire drill will take place to make sure that students are aware of the evacuation procedure.
Bede’s will decide which houses will be used for boys/girls according to the number of enrolments in each week. We accept accommodation requests, but these are subject to availability on arrival and cannot be guaranteed.
