The house is warmed throughout with hot water apparatus and thoroughly ventilated.
The whole school consists of Preparatory, Middle and Upper Departments, in which the ages vary from six to eighteen years.
When desired, arrangements are made to clothe and take entire charge of pupils during the Vacation.
