Hiring School Facilities

Larwood School is set in a nice and quiet area is the perfect place for holding functions and events.  There is adequate car parking and facilities on-site.  We are pleased to offer for hire certain areas of the school grounds: the School Hall, Playing Fields, Play Barn and Astro Turf.

These spaces are available for private hire in the evening, on weekends, and in our school holidays (please click the link to see our term dates or enquire as our holidays may not mirror mainstream holidays). Our facilities are available for hosting many events, such as: creative classes, training events, fitness related classes, meetings, workshops and courses, children’s birthday parties, holiday clubs and other private or community events.

Larwood School will always consider reasonable requests for hiring the school’s facilities for local community and educational groups, but priority will be given to the following uses:

  • After-school clubs during term-time for Larwood pupils only. 
  • Activities that the residential team have in place.
  • Evening events organised by school, parents evening, gym and dance display, school pantomime etc. 

All lettings to outside clubs etc. will be judged against potential clashes with existing users.

Applications are to be made in writing, either by letter or email, to the Governance and Operations Assistant - Francesca Lewis (
