New Boarding House!18/09/17
It is pleasing to report that The Hammond continues to expand in all areas. This has meant an increasing demand for boarding places, and we are delighted to announce that the school has acquired a new boarding house.
Betty Hassall House is the former Devonia hotel situated on Hoole Road, close to Chester City Centre. This building will usefully complement the school's existing boarding provision, which includes Hampton Lodge and Clovelly House. This year, Betty Hassall House will be home to Year 7 and 8 boys, some Year 11 girls, and a handful of post-16 students. Further exciting developments in boarding involves an extension to Hampton Lodge on Liverpool Road, which is due to be completed in February 2018. This 'new build' will increase the number of dormitories and improve the shower and toilet facilities. The additional space will also allow us to advance our pace of renovations at Hampton.
