Information regarding recent developments at Bader College and Herstmonceux Castle. (20/11/2023)

Recently, we have learned about a number of structural issues at the Castle requiring immediate attention, including repairs needed to the south wall of the building. A structural engineer visited the Castle two weeks ago and confirmed that the situation is more serious than previously understood.
As a result, portions of the Castle have closed to ensure the health and safety of students, staff, and faculty, and out of an abundance of caution, all operations at the Castle have been suspended. Academic programming at Bader College has moved online until the end of the fall term, and students will continue their studies in January at the Kingston, Ontario, campus of Queen’s University in Canada. Bader College staff and professionals from Queen’s University are working very hard to ensure a smooth transition for all involved.
Bader College continues to assess the situation and the full extent of the work needed, but it is clear at this point that repairs to the Castle will take at least 12-18 months. Additionally, a complete survey of other areas of the Castle will be undertaken in late January/early February.
We realise this may be distressing news for many within the local community, and those with close ties to Bader College and the Castle. As much as possible, we will keep you informed about ongoing developments at the Castle.
