Once all the auditions have taken place, Wilkes give us a full new intake list with everyone’s names and email addresses. We then contact everyone via email with a date and time that you can register. On that day, you’ll all be emailed out a password for the registration section of our website. Our rooms are allocated on a first come first served basis, so we have the same registration day for everyone to keep it as fair as possible.
This depends on the number of students who register to live at The Bell but the majority of our students share a bedroom. The maximum number of students per bedroom is 2.
You will share with someone who’s the same sex as you and someone who’s close to you in age.
At the bottom of the registration form there is a ‘Special Requests’ box. If there is a certain person you would like to share with please both request it in that box.
If The Bell Hotel reaches its capacity, we work with the academy to select older students to move into a house with other students from their year group. The price for a room in a house is the same as an individual room at The Bell. Please don’t worry about losing a space, we ensure we house every student who registers with us.
We welcome prospective students to come and view The Bell on the same day the academy has their induction day. You will be able to view examples of rooms, but please note not every room is available to show.
The car park at The Bell is owned by a different company, but we have the option of renting spaces from them. The spaces are £150 for the year, payable in advance with the first months’ rent.
When you register for accommodation you can request a parking space on your registration form. These are allocated on a first come first serve basis so indicate this early to avoid disappointment.
There are lockers at the bell that you can request on your registration form. They are £50 to hire for the year, payable in advance.
