Our Facilities

Picture: Philip Vile

Bright and spacious classrooms and modern science labs, alongside creative spaces, play areas and superb sports facilities provide a wonderful environment in which Perse pupils can flourish.

We have invested around £40million in ensuring first-class facilities across all of our school sites in the last decade and have plans to build a new sports complex with swimming pool at the Upper over the next two years.

The Pelican

Based in a former Perse boarding house, the Pelican provides a safe and welcoming atmosphere for our youngest children.

The recently-refurbished playground provides an exciting area for outside learning as well as recreation, while Nursery children enjoy their own dedicated outdoor space in which to play and explore.

The Prep

Set within four acres of spacious parkland, the Prep features a mix of traditional and modern buildings in which a purposeful and stimulating environment for learning is created.

Among the Prep’s extensive facilities are two state-of-the-art science labs and a fully-equipped ICT suite, modern art and design technology rooms, music practice and music technology rooms, and a dedicated drama studio.

The Prep also benefits from nine acres of playing fields on its doorstep, including a full-sized all-weather pitch and two netball courts.

The Upper

The Upper is situated in an attractive 27-acre site with extensive playing fields and recreational space, including two full-sized floodlit all-weather pitches and five netball courts.

At the heart of the Upper lies the award-winning Peter Hall Performing Arts Centre. Opened in 2018, this impressive structure provides first-class performance facilities for drama, music and lectures and features a 370-seat auditorium, café and rehearsal and exhibition spaces, set within the elegant Ellison Court.

Other facilities include high specification IT suites, science labs and classrooms, a newly-refurbished lecture theatre, purpose-built sports centre, sports studio, climbing wall and strength and conditioning suite, a music centre with rehearsal hall and extensive practice rooms, art studios with graphic design suite and gallery, and a dedicated outdoor pursuits centre.

The Perse Sports Centre: Our brand new sports centre includes a six-lane, 25m swimming pool, climbing academy and sports hall. Find out more here.

We also have access to 45 acres of outdoor space at Little Abington, just 15 minutes from the school.

The Sixth Form

Our Sixth Form students enjoy the use of a stunningly refurbished common room with soft seating, music, table football and a hot drinks machine.

Students also have access to a wide range of areas including the library and Performing Arts Centre café, where they can quietly work. Students enjoy their own dining facilities in the Sixth Form Café and newly built Hersch Room.
