For a small school, The Mall has exceptional facilities. Alongside a purpose built science laboratory, computer suite and modern classrooms with interactive whiteboards we are in a unique position to have the following facilities which enable our pupils to experience an impressive range of creative, performance and sporting opportunities.
Creative and Performing Arts Centre
Our Creative and Performing Arts Centre houses a large art studio, design technology workshop, 130 seat theatre, music room and several small rooms for instrumental lessons. All boys from across the school get an opportunity throughout the year to perform in front of their parents in concerts, plays and recitals and all boys use the art studio with the DT workshop used by Years 3 to 6.
Our outstanding sports facilities include a 20 metre indoor, heated swimming pool and a modern, purpose built sports hall. Each class, from Reception to Year 6, has a weekly swimming lesson and boys make fantastic progress in their swimming and many boys swim in regional and national competitions with great success. In recent years, we have repeatedly won the Richmond borough championships and had finalists in national swimming competitions. Each class also has a weekly PE lesson with our sports specialists either in the sports hall or outside in the playground. Boys in Years 2 have use of St James’ School playing fields for an afternoon of games each week and boys in Years 3 to 6 go to Sunbury Cricket Club two afternoons a week for games and fixtures.
We have two large playgrounds on site, one for younger boys equipped with a play frame and space for trikes and other fun and interactive pieces of equipment. Older boys have a climbing wall for budding mountaineers and plenty of room for football and other games.
Our library is a large and vibrant space which also works as a multi-activity area and is about to undergo an extensive refurbishment to meet the changing needs of all the boys who will use it each week for a library lesson.
