Special Occasions

This section

Ardingly College offers a range of ideal spaces for those special occasions:  Birthday Parties, Wedding Receptions and Family Celebrations.  Each comes equipped with seating and tables that can be arranged precisely according to your needs. 

We are delighted to offer a choice of function rooms for your special day at Ardingly College, which are available during College holiday periods.

The Under
Recently refurbished ‘The Under’ is a light beautiful oak panelled function room with period style windows, a wonderfully vaulted beamed ceiling and large stage area with a fully equipped and modern lighting rig.  The Under has a seating capacity of 140.

The Dining Hall
The Dining Hall is again a large function room, beautifully panelled in dark oak, lit by seven impressive chandeliers. The traditional old English oak dining tables offer a seating capacity of 200.

The South Quad
The South Quad is the perfect outside area for guests to socialise and enjoy the splendour of the College whilst enjoying pre-dinner drinks.  It is an ideal location for a marquee and has breathtaking views over the upper Ouse Valley, offering a magical backdrop for those all-important photos.

The Friends’ Barn
Friends’ Barn, situated in the charming Pre-Prep area of the College, is the perfect location for children’s parties with its self-contained playground and kitchen, and space for a bouncy castle and DJ. 

Our bespoke Wedding Receptions start from £50 per head which includes a menu tasting for four people, a three course wedding breakfast, sparkling wine for the toast and an evening buffet.
