Saint Cecilia’s boasts outstanding accommodation carefully designed to meet present curriculum requirements and with the capacity to adapt to future needs.
Situated under one roof, the school has been designed to preserve the character of the largely residential conservation area in which it is sited. Along with two playgrounds, the site has a pleasant social play area surrounded by trees and two habitat areas within the building complex to provide some landscaping relief. The site is secure, with one main entrance for staff, pupils and visitors, and one entrance for deliveries. Access to the school’s Reception is controlled by videophone.
On the Ground Floor, Modern Foreign Languages, Technology, Art, Drama and Dance are accommodated, whilst English, Mathematics and Music are situated on the First Floor, along with the Information Centre and the school’s Information and Communications Technology Centre. Religious Education, History, Geography and Citizenship (which includes Personal, Social and Health Education as well as Careers) are taught on the Second Floor, which also accommodates the Sixth Form Common Room and Study Centre. Science accommodation spans both the Ground Floor and the First Floor.
Whilst pupils go off-site to the Barn Elms Sports Centre and Wimbledon Park for the outside team game components of the Physical Education syllabus, the school boasts a 28m x 18m Sports Hall which accommodates indoor Physical Education activities as well as providing a venue for School Assemblies. Pupils have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments in a large 275 square metre Refectory. The school has an attractive Chapel for the use of pupils and staff, both for voluntary services and private prayer and reflection.
