Set on a spacious 25 hectare campus, the school features a mix of historic and modern buildings, all of which reflect elements of the outstanding original building designed by noted architect Sir John Sulman in 1892. The extensive facilities of the school include a creative arts precinct, the heart of which is the Hoskins Centre. This facility incorporates a 240-seat performance theatre, specialist art and drama rooms and fully equipped sound and lighting desk. The adjacent Music Centre includes an audio recording studio and facilities for group and individual tuition.
