Facilities

Good facilities don't make a good school but they certainly give us an excellent starting point. Our bright and attractive classrooms and beautiful grounds create an uplifting environment that is conducive to learning. Facilities include:-

Lyncombe House

This Georgian mansion is the heart of the school. It houses our excellent library run by a dedicated librarian, large gymnasium/dining hall, ICT suite, nursery with secure indoor and outdoor play areas, art studio, modern languages and music rooms, and many of the classrooms. Our ICT suite has a network of PCs, all with child-safe broadband internet access. There are also computers and interactive whiteboards in individual classrooms.

Grounds

The Paragon is set in eight acres of beautiful grounds with woodland, conservation areas, lawns, streams, and both paved and grassy areas for play. A large play area surrounded by 'astro turf' and a low level assault course help to make play times exciting and fun. We use the grounds and, in particular, our North American Teepee and outdoor learning pods as our 'outdoor classrooms' and we use them right across the curriculum. There is plenty of space for when the children need to run around, express themselves physically and burn off some of their energy.

Sporting facilities

Our on-site facilities include a well-equipped gym, two hard play areas (for tennis and netball) and a playing field. We also use our superb facilities at the senior school including science labs, an indoor swimming pool, astroturf and grass pitches, tennis courts, athletics track, dance studio and our impressive new Bury Sports Centre.
