ENBS students living at Queen Alexandra's House


Recommended Posts

I applied in the middle of April, and got a room. When did your DD apply? :)

We applied as soon as she was offered her place in April. How strange. Have been told we should have heard but the lady we need to speak to is in on Monday

DD and I have been to visit Queen Alexandra House today and have put her name down for a room there.

 

Was wondering if there was anyone else with experience of a DD living there whilst at ENBS?

 

It seemed safe and secure, if a bit shabby and old fashioned, but a fabulous area to live in. Anyone got any advice, pointers etc?

Congratulations to your DD

Loulabelle. 

 

Things to consider. 

Most of the other young women there were music students. 

Obviously I don't know what the ratio will be in September but it's worth considering. 

Would advise to find out who else is staying there and connect. 

Its a bus ride from school. School hours are long. Sometimes they don't get back in time to eat. 

 

This is might seem negative. The staff were very helpful.

Thanks Angel. 

Don't worry about negative things, I'm happy to hear that as will help in the long run.

 

Do you know where else the ballet students tend to stay? 

My DD is non vocational, first time living away from home, so want her to be with the other first years if possible. She has made contact with a couple of girls as they all seem to know who each other are on the audition circuit. But we are the first ones to view QAH.

Yes that's right. It is safe and close to bus routes. 

 

If your DD is confident and independent, it's a great base.

 

Wishing your DD lots of happiness and success at ENBS. 

 

If if I can be of any other help let me know. 

 

Angel.

My DD lived at QAH for her 3 years at ENBS and she was very happy there. They tend to put the ENBS students on the same floor, so that they can be together to socialise, cook etc. I liked that it had someone at the desk 24 hours, so that it was very secure. The food was excellent, although not always healthy, so they have to be disciplined on what they eat. After the first year, my DD's room was upgraded, which was fantastic and I believe that they are slowly renovating all the rooms. She had the small room, which was fine, as they are not in their rooms much. The staff are very friendly and caring of all the residents too.

 

Please send me a private message if you need to know anything else. Hope this helps. LTD
