Full Board Accommodation Packages are priced per week for one person. A second person sharing a deluxe, double or twin room need only book a Catering Package.

To discuss your requirements and available options, please contact the Summer School office. Under 16s must share a room with a parent or guardian.


If you wish to organise your own off-site accommodation, or live locally, you can purchase a Non-resident Courses and Concerts Pass.
