Where we work

Based in the popular seaside destination of Southwold in Suffolk, our teaching spaces in the heart of the town offer convenient walking access to a dynamic coastline and a complicated urban landscape offering opportunities for a range of human and physical fieldwork investigations.


Redeveloped and reopened in 2022, we moved in to Southwold's Old Hospital as our permanent home in Spring 2023.

Our flexible and modern teaching space here includes a classroom to accommodate 50 students and 2 meeting rooms which cater for up to 14 students.

The Old Hospital includes a locally sourced café, where discounted group meals can be arranged on request.

Southwold Arts Centre


Our 1st base in Southwold since 2017, we love the flexibility of the teaching spaces in the wonderfully retro and deceptively large Arts Centre.

Located next to Southwold's primary school on Cumberland Road, a range of local groups use the spaces in the building which include an impressive theatre hall - the perfect venue for larger GCSE cohorts.

Generally, parking nearby can be quite limited, however free on-street parking can often be found on nearby Stradbroke Road or Marlborough Road.

The town's main car park at the pier has over 250 spaces and is a 5-minute walk away. Alternatively, a second car park is found on Gardner Road on Southwold common. Southwold Pier car park
