A short distance from the main gate is a dedicated, state-of-the-art science center which opened in 2011. All classrooms and regular recreation areas are on one site, thus avoiding students having to regularly crossroads or leaving one campus to reach another.

The campus has modern and well maintained facilities, which include classrooms, recreation halls, computer labs, a cafeteria, library, tennis courts, and several outdoor play areas. Saint Maur also owns an outdoor sports complex, Peverley Place, which opened in 2003 and is located only a three-minute walk from the main buildings.
