OUR SCHOOL

Hendon College offers the best facilities for students. A careful tour of the school reveals the best academic and boarding facilities. The Biology, Chemistry, Physics and ICT laboratories are carefully and professionally equipped. The school library is excellently resourced. Every classroom is fully air-conditioned  and equipped with a smart board. The hostel rooms are simply designed to be homes away from home; spacious air-conditioned rooms designed for four students per room and a locker per student. The cafeteria is very decent for sumptuous meals and snacks. For the all round student and for recreational purposes there are standard lawn tennis and basketball courts, an Astroturf soccer pitch with a covered stand for spectators, a beautiful swimming pool with changing rooms attached to it, tartan tracks for athletics and indoor games such as table tennis.
