Facilities for hire

The Commonweal School has a variety of ‘teaching & learning’ spaces as well as performance spaces for hire.  These range in size from fully equipped classrooms with projectors, to the Main Hall and the Sixth Form Auditorium which houses Jamie Cullum’s piano.  Both the Hall and the Auditorium come complete with stage and audio-visual set-up.  We also have a state of the art Sixth Form block, with 250 seater auditorium, drama rooms, café and other key resource areas available for hire.

As a Performing Arts School we are particularly proud of our drama and dance facilities, many of which were fully refurbished in September 2010. Hirers may also be able to utilise the expertise of our specialist Technician, dependent on availability.

All of our indoor facilities are heated from October to April.  Please note that use of some of the facilities mentioned above (e.g. sound & lighting systems) may not be included in the hire contract but may be negotiated with the school.

Guest Wi-Fi Internet access is also available.
