London Colney Junior Centre

Based at Academy St Albans

Our new residential year-round centre at London Colney offers an ideal base for your junior group programme. Just 30km from Central London, it is very conveniently located for discovering the capital, while providing a stunning, peaceful and secure location for your stay.

Looking like a scene from the movies, our London Colney centre oozes traditional school charm. It’s set in a majestic 19th-century building and within 36 hectares of beautiful grounds. You’ll love the traditional quad (a garden surrounded by buildings on all four sides), the chapel and the stunning
great hall – an ideal space for performances and parties. Teaching facilities are spacious and modern, with 15 large classrooms, many with interactive whiteboards, and an excellent study centre. Activity spaces include a common room with TV and games, an art room, outdoor basketball, football
pitches, a campfire site, and a wealth of green space for walking or orienteering. Wi-Fi is available throughout the ground floor of the main building and there is 24/7 gated security.

Our centre is just 1.5km from London Colney village and, as well as the capital, there are plenty of nearby attractions, such as the cathedral city of St Albans (6km) and, for Harry Potter fans, Warner Bros Studio Tour (15km).

You’ll truly have the best of both worlds in London’s countryside!
