Camberlot and Dorter

3 8

In 1982, to cater for the increased intake of boy boarders, Camberlot Hall was purchased by St Bede's Trust to accommodate around 45 students.

This pseudo medieval castle, situated a mile down the road from the School, provide distinctly homely accommodation until 2007 when construction of the new Camberlot House was completed.

Originally, the building which is now home to the girls of Dorter House actually contained Crossways; Dorter was latterly founded as Bede's needed to expand its number of girls' boarding places.

Both Houses are linked via a stunning central atrium with shared gardens, picnic tables and barbecue areas in a wooded area to the rear.

At the front, meanwhile, there is a carefully manicured lawn and fish-pond with its own wooden bridge to ferry boarders home from and, of course, back to school.

Any boarding house is much more about the people who live in it than the bricks and mortar, but nonetheless Camberlot and Dorter boast a number of single en-suite rooms for Sixth Formers as well as 2, 4 and 6-person dorms for those who would rather share.

Each House also features a number of sustainable technologies, from solar cells to grey water recycling and a reed bed - all of which are hidden from view to such an extent that you may never even realise they are there!
