Coldfall Main Hall

The main hall at Coldfall is a self contained extension of the school building. The outdoor facilities of the school grounds and the amenities inside the hall together offer a wide range of possibilities.  There is an outdoor decking area with stunning views over Coldfall Woods.  There are multiple power points, self contained toilet facilities and disabled access throughout.  There is access to a serving area for light refreshments.

The hall can seat approximately 200 people and is ideal for meetings and conferences. The flooring is wooden laminate and suitable for activities such as exercise or self-defence classes.  Excellent acoustics and the size of the hall make it particularly suitable for music performances, drama and dance.

Coldfall Lower Hall

Coldfall’s smaller lower hall has capacity for 100 people and can also be used for sport and keep fit, meetings, conferences and children’s parties.  There is a separate entrance, toilets and disabled access.

MUGA

The Multi Use Games Area is an outdoor astro-turf games facility located off the main field.  It is has nets for ball games, and is self-contained.

School Field

The school playing field is a large, grass-covered outdoor space.  It has goals for ball games, and can be used for a variety of events.
