Mary Hare School came to its current home at Arlington Manor near Newbury in 1946.  Over the 1950s the school developed, and a number of new buildings and facilities were built.  This included a school gym and swimming pool, with changing rooms. Since then, the small gym (9.1m x 18.3m) has not changed.  The cramped changing rooms serve both the gym, the pool, and outdoor activities. This limits some of the activities that the young people can take part in. 

Sport is important as part of the curriculum and also for the young people who board and want to take part in physical activities in the evenings and at the weekend.
