Facilities

The school is housed for the most part in traditional buildings but enjoys excellent, modern facilities. A major investment programme has produced outstanding accommodation for ICT, Music, Technology and Science to add to our existing well-equipped teaching rooms and Library Resource Centre. There are also specialist facilities for Art, Dance and Drama, air-conditioned computer suites, a gymnasium, fitness suite, sports hall, outdoor swimming pool and extensive playing fields.

Investment in our ICT infrastructure means that all Departments now have direct Internet access, laptops, multimedia projectors and many are making creative use of electronic whiteboards to enhance teaching and learning.

Testbourne library is a modern e-learning library, using Eclipse.Net so all pupils have fingertip identification. The library has over 5,000 books ranging from Reference, Audio, Fiction and Non-Fiction books as well as popular magazines and newspapers. The library is kept up-to-date, and we try to ensure that all books are no more than 10 years old. The librarian regularly liaises with teachers for book requests.

The library is now able to offer Online Curriculum and Literacy related book lists, with 12 desktop PC’s and 20 laptops for the disposal of all staff and students during open times. We are proud of the standards achieved by the school and its
