The elegant main building at 23 Collingham Gardens, where all the A level teaching takes place, overlooks a quiet garden square in Kensington. The grand housing schemes in this area of Kensington date from the 1880’s and the college itself, originally a large private house, is a spacious and well proportioned building, with fine classical friezes and other mouldings.

Formerly Gibbs’ Preparatory School, the building has been in continuous educational use since 1925, and has been refurbished and extended over the years. It has twenty-seven classrooms, a large study room, extensively-equipped Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Computer laboratories, a purpose-built art studio with facilities for drawing, painting, sculpture and printmaking, a language laboratory, IT and Digital Photography suites, and a Photography Darkroom. All students have access to photocopying and broadband computers. There is a small canteen in the basement where sandwiches, snacks and hot drinks are freshly made to order.
"...maintained in such a way as to preserve that sense of its being a house, not an institution." (The Good Schools Guide)
The GCSE department is at 17 Queen’s Gate Place, very close to the Natural History Museum. In addition to classrooms, the building has a photography dark room, a supervised study room, coffee room, audio-visual resources, photocopying and computer facilities. Students go to the main building for practical lessons in Art and Science.
