Broadwater School

Hire our Facilities


Broadwater is a secondary school built within an estate of 2.5 acres and offers many facilities for sport and social activities.

We have an assortment of rooms for public hire ranging from our large assembly hall (ideal for dances and parties) right through to our wildlife garden, which offers a secluded area ideal for a barbeque with friends.

If you are planning an event, why not give us a call and see if we can help you?

Assembly Hall

The assembly hall and stage is centrally located within the school but also has access from our garden quadrangle – which makes it ideal for summer events.  The hall can easily seat 350 people in comfort and we can offer our stage facilities which include a stage lighting array and sound system. We have also fitted a drop down projector screen, which makes it an ideal venue for conferences and presentations to larger groups of people – PowerPoint displays are easily set up using a laptop computer and our whiteboard interface.

We host ballroom dances within the hall and are told that we have one of the best “dancing” floors in the area – one of our clients has been using our facility for 25 years!

The hall can also be configured as a venue for a party or reception and we have the facility to provide a licensed bar for your event – as well as areas for a dance floor and food service.

The Bistro & Garden

We recently completed a refurbishment of our school bistro and this has further improved this facility which is adjacent to the school kitchens and main assembly hall.

The bistro is a well lit roomy area, designed for food service to our students, but it is also a very useful area for holding a children’s (or adult's) birthday party.  The facility contains a range of tables and chairs and can also be heated in the winter months.

The Bistro also has access doors on to our quadrangle garden area which has a patio and sun sail – making it an ideal area to use for Summer barbecues and parties. We have also set up our bouncy castle in this garden for children’s parties.

The Learn Centre

Our Learn Centre is a conference room that is accessible from within the school but also has doors out to our wildlife garden area and our sports fields.

The room is air-conditioned and has movable tables and a whiteboard/projector setup. There is also a unisex WC contained within the room together with a small kitchenette area ideal for tea and coffee making.

Drama Room

Our wildlife garden sits at the back of our school, adjacent to our sports fields and sports centre. The garden is enclosed by bushes and fences and has a large sun sail for essential shade during the hot Summer months. The garden forms part of an eco-project for our students and contains a shallow pond which attracts all sorts of wildlife.

There is a seating area and the garden's seclusion makes it an ideal venue for a party or barbecue – particularly if you also want to use our sports facilities at the same time.


Don’t forget that we can also offer a host of sporting activities through our Sports Centre which is open to the public Mon-Fri 5 – 10pm   Saturday 9am – 6pm  Sunday 9am – 4pm. For more details, contact the Sports Centre on 01483 520658.
