Our buildings

An eclectic mix of buildings adds to the charm of the school's setting.

They range from the modern, custom-designed classrooms at Dunhurst and Dunannie, through to the Grade I listed Lupton Hall and Memorial Library at Bedales (designed by Ernest Gimson and completed in 1921), and two, contemporary, award-winning buildings: the Olivier Theatre (built in 1997) and the Orchard Building (2005).

Bedales' award-winning Art & Design Building was completed in 2016 (watch a film of the opening ceremony).
