School facilities for hire
At Davenant Foundation School, we offer an excellent and wide range of facilities and venues for hire for the communities of Loughton, Theydon Bois, Epping Forest and beyond.
We believe the local community should have access to these facilities when the school is not in session, for a reasonable charge.
Whether you are an organization based in Essex or East London and looking to host a regular event or workshop, a sports team or club looking for a venue to host weekly or one-off training and development, or a local club looking for somewhere to make your regular home, we have the facilities for you. Spaces available from £20 per hour.
The school is very accessible locally in Essex or from east London: under 10 minutes’ drive from both the M25 and M11 motorways; a 15 minute walk from Debden London Underground Station (Central Line); or 10 minute cab ride from Chingford Overground rail station.
Please note - we are unable to host private functions, such as birthday parties or weddings. All organizations that hire our facilities must have their own public liability insurance.
