Frequently Asked Questions


Here we answer the most common questions we are asked. If you have a question which hasn't been answered, please complete an enquiry form and we'll be in touch with the answer.

I've been given a place at Wilkes Academy, how and when can I register for my accommodation

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.

How many students will have to have share bedrooms? 

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. 

How do you allocate who shares with who? 

You will share with someone who’s the same sex as you and someone who’s close to you in age.

Can I request to share with a specific person?

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.

What if The Bell is full? 

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.

Can I come and see The Bell? 

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. 

Is there parking at The Bell?

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. 

How do I request a parking space? 

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.

Are there lockers at The Bell?

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.
