Fully modernised dormitories are laid out in sections, in separate buildings for Boys and Girls. All rooms and corridors are carpeted and the dorms are centrally heated. There are wall spaces provided for poster displays. Nearly all rooms hold three or four beds although the larger dormitory (for girls) has eight. Within their separate buildings both boys and girls are divided into sections according to year. First years, for example have their own separate section. This eases pupils into residential living as many will be living away from home for the first time.
