ELLSO is pleased to have been offered the use of excellent facilities in the School Music Department, the extensive grounds, chapel and Sports Centre,  and accommodation in various School Boarding Houses.


Residential accommodation is in three adjoining Boarding Houses. School House, Round House and Littles, all of which are situated within walking distance of the excellent music and catering facilities that the school provides.

There are a few twin bedrooms, but all the others are single rooms, set up with the usual bed linen and two towels. Showers are within close location of the rooms and all rooms have washbasins. Rooms are cleaned and towels changed during the week.

Special accommodation arrangements can be made for a limited number of players with disablity or a need for ensuite facilities - to enquire, please contact summerschool@ellso.org.
