Listed by English Heritage for its architectural interest

Victorian building on 10 hectares of its own grounds

First built in 1856 by an Oxford University Professor

The main building itself is just a small part of the continuously expanding school. This houses the administrative offices, the library, dining room, medical room, art room and the new student common room. There are additional buildings for teaching and residential accommodation and a sports hall. We also have a new state of the art IT room and Biology lab located in our new environmentally friendly Hickman building.


Our school library is housed in the main building and has a very traditional feel, with some original details dating back to 1856. It is stocked with a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction titles to assist students in their academic studies as well as reading in their free time.

The library also comprises a university information section with prospectuses and useful application information and dates. There is also a selection of DVDs for students to borrow to further improve their English during free time at evenings and on weekends. There are several computers with high speed internet connection and WIFI for students who prefer to use their own electronic devices for studying. The library also has a modern mezzanine floor upstairs with a private study area for students.


On the school grounds, King’s College Saint Michael’s has the following sports facilities:

• Outdoor swimming pool (used in the summer term and summer school only).
• An all weather flood-lit court (for 5 a-side football, basketball and tennis).
• A grass volleyball court.
• 2 grass football pitches
• Grass pitch used for baseball / cricket / rounders
• Small indoor sports hall
• Gym (with cross trainer, rowing machine, stepper, tread mill, bicycle, stretching area, sit up ball).


Each residence has its own kitchen area which comes well equipped with all the necessities for day to day life, including kettles, rice cookers, microwaves, fridges and ovens. This allows our students the flexibility to embrace their culinary skills and prepare their own food or snacks when they want.
Apart from the on-site facilities for self catering, the college provides daily hot meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner for all students, ensuring that they benefit from nutritious and healthy meals every day, including weekends.
Our dining room is the social hub of the school and we make it our duty to ensure a variety of foods are served. We frequently provide international dishes from one of the home countries of our pupils, which gives students a taste of home and helps to truly enhances our multicultural experience.
