The Purcell School is situated on the outskirts of London within a 17-acre site of Hertfordshire greenery. This provides a close connection to the capital as well as all of the benefits of a semi-rural environment.

The campus boasts a state-of-the-art Music Centre, industry standard recording studio, performance stages, full boarding facilities, catering team and ample parking.

As a school for young musicians and charitable institution, The Purcell School is only available to music related courses and organisations for venue hire and lettings. Unfortunately, this prohibits the hire of venue or facilities for corporate or wedding purposes.

‘We really enjoyed our residency at The Purcell School; the first class facilities are ideal for high-quality music-making. The versatility of the spaces available also work well for activities and events outside of rehearsal time.’ Southbank Sinfonia

The School can accommodate both non-residential and residential lettings, and offers a variety of lettings packages based upon the hire of either the Constance Pilkington Hall (a large performance space) or the Recital Room (a more intimate performance space). These packages comprise use of the Schools amenities including, but not limited to, classrooms, practice rooms, percussion suite and sports facilities.

Residential facilities include single, double and triple bedrooms, communal kitchenettes, communal living spaces and social spaces. Residential lettings groups must be a minimum size of 50 (smaller groups will be considered on a sharing basis) and maximum of 150 people.

Please note that residential accommodation can only be provided outside of the academic term.
