About the College

Our £35 million campus offers an impressive range of buildings, facilities and resources to give you a modern and stimulating learning environment, complemented by the most up to date learning materials, IT facilities and resources.

There are plenty of places to eat, including the food court and Sports Café, with an on-site Starbucks and Costa Coffee. For something a bit different you can visit the Le Nouveau Restaurant where our catering students provide a wide range of delicious meals. Students can also visit the POD shop for everything from sandwiches and tea, to soft drinks and chocolate bars.

We provide services for students and the general public alike. Halo, our hair and beauty salon offers everything from hair cuts to fake tans. Musicians can take full advantage of our recording studios and rehearsal rooms, whereas fitness fans will enjoy the Steps2Fitness gym which houses all the latest cardio and weight machines.
