New 60 Student Boarding House at Bede’s

MacConvilles are delighted to have supported Bede’s School in constructing a new modern Boarding House in the heart of the school’s campus. The new two storey building was a project started before the pandemic and whilst delayed, the finished result is testament to the hard work and dedication of all involved.

The stunning new development features inspiration from its location next to the South Downs and includes modern facilities, accommodating 70 beds with scope for higher capacity, as well as a 170 square meter atrium, learning spaces, flexible spaces for meetings and conferences, offices, kitchen facilities, and storage areas. It also uses an eco-friendly heat source to reducing its carbon footprint. There is a focus of nature and the environment throughout the house, featuring wood finishes and floor to ceiling windows.



“It was an honour and privilege to be invited to open Bede’s new boarding house, Dorms, see such excellent facilities, meet the dedicated members of the house boarding team and some of the boarders. Dorms is a great example of first-class, 21st century boarding accommodation which I am sure will be appreciated by all current and future students.”
