2021 Summer School Accommodation and price list


The 2021  ELLSO Summer School will be held at Uppingham School, Uppingham, Rutland

There is a frequent train service from London to nearby Oakham, and from there it is a short taxi or bus ride to the School. There is on-site parking for those who need it.

ELLSO is pleased to have been offered the use of excellent rehearsal and teaching spaces at the School, the extensive grounds, chapel and Sports Centre.


Residential accommodation is in three Boarding Houses, New HouseWest Bank and The Lodge which between them offer a range of room options. All are situated within close 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 most rooms have washbasins. There are also a good number of ensuite rooms. Bathrooms and public areas are serviced daily, and bedrooms are cleaned midweek. 

ELLSO has also reserved a few double ensuite rooms in a nearby hotel  - if you have a need for one of these, please contact summerschool@ellso.org for details.
