    We are looking for a location for 3 weeks shooting + 1 week prep in Spring 2016 (currently scheduled for March).  We are looking for somewhere to double as a private boarding school (so think Dead Poet’s Society … wood panelling, traditional etc).  Large manor houses are a possibility.  The entire film takes place within this location and the director has very specific requests/requirements.  

    Alternatively, if you have a number of different locations within a similar vicinity (ie within the same county) that provide the various rooms needed, then I’d love to hear.  The nearer to London/Surrey the better (as it reduces our accommodation budget) but as long as it’s in the UK we’ll consider it (Wales and Scotland are a little too far).

    We need rooms that can double as the following:

    Large grounds/remote location
    1 main classroom (preferably 1st or second floor)
    3 secondary classrooms (preferably 1st or second floor)
    1 long corridor (preferably 1st or second floor) connecting above rooms
    1 large room that can be set up as a library (or this could be at a different location)
    1 small room that can be set up as a school lab (or this could be at a different location)
    2 separate stairwells leading to the ground floor
    1 communal toilets
    1 balcony
    1 roof access
    1 school sports hall/gym2 (or this could be a different location)
