Handcross offers separate accommodation for boys and girls with cheerful bedrooms which typically cater for three to six students.
Students share their bedroom with children of the same age and from different countries which helps them to mix, speak English and forge new friendships. Bathrooms are located on each floor and are shared. 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.
A common room is available for students to relax in during their free time with a television, books and board games for their enjoyment. 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.
