Sixth Form students have access to a range of work, study and social areas to enable them to study in a manner appropriate to their own needs and the demands of their courses.


Poole High Senior School has its own designated dining area in the spacious and airy Merchants’ Hall. The canteen serves a range of hot and cold food at morning break and during lunchtimes. There is ample seating for students and the space is used flexibly by the students depending on their scheduled activities.


The Mezzanine area, situated above the canteen, has seating areas ideal for collaborative tasks that require discussion. This area is also furnished with computers for internet-based research and the production of work. A networked printer is provided so students can produce hard copies of their assignments.

The Silent Study area is ideal for the completion of more independent work. Like the Mezzanine floor, the Silent Study area is furnished with computing and printing facilities.

The Upper Library is available for Senior School students to use as a quiet study area. This is especially useful if students require access to texts related to their programme of study.


Poole High School has a well equipped fitness suite, a dance studio and a range of courts and pitches. A wide range of sporting equipment is also available.

Although these areas are used as teaching spaces, they are often available for use before and after the school day. For safety reasons, any students who wish to use sporting spaces and facilities should consult a member of the Physical Education department for more information.
