Monique's Bed & Breakfast is located with a couple of minutes walk from the National Film & Television School accommodation.
The National Film and Television School is a film school established in 1971 and based at Beaconsfield Studios in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire. It was at number 1 in the 2014 Hollywood Reporter top 15 International film schools.
Its community of students makes around a hundred films a year on courses that are over 90% practical and unlike courses offered at other UK film schools. As of 2013 it had around 220 full-time students, with a further two dozen part-timers on the Script Development course and about a thousand a year on its short courses. Beaconsfield Studios comprises film and television stages, animation and production design studios, edit suites, sound post-production facilities, a music recording studio and a dubbing theatre, all furnished with current digital equipment comparable to that used in the film and television industry. It is the only film school in the UK with its own film and television studios.
The BBC stated that the NFTS was the "leading centre of excellence for education in film and television programme making", and noted that it was "relevant to the industry's present and future needs." British Film Magazine once described the NFTS as being one of the few schools to come "very, very close" to guaranteeing a job in the film industry; Filmmaking.net named it one of two films schools outside the US which had such a high international reputation.
