Facilities

We have invested over £12 million in our college facilities over the past ten years. Our students enjoy learning in a modern and dynamic environment and they use new technology and specialist equipment to enhance their studies.

Our fantastic campus and facilities mean we can also offer a wide range of interesting and inspiring enrichment activities and provide a range of services to make college life relaxed and enjoyable.

Sports - a 3rd generation floodlit sports pitch, multi-use games area, tennis courts, sports hall with climbing wall and state of the art fitness suite.

Dance Studio - a new fully sprung dance and exercise studio was opened in September 2011 providing excellent facilities for a range of dance and martial arts, yoga and various fitness classes (pictured above).

Hair and Beauty Salons - our range of salons provide students with the opportunity to develop and practise their skills in an industry standard environment with real clients.

IT facilities - we have a substantial range of IT classrooms equipped with industry standard software, a modern hardware room with the latest up to date computer technologies including two Apple Mac suites. We have a new CISCO networking suite which provides appropriate students with the opportunity to develop specialist skills and accreditation with CISCO. See also E-Learning.

Learning Centre - the Learning Centre offers students and staff a comfortable and well-resourced area on two floors which combines modern IT facilities and a traditional library.

Nursery - Strode College Day Nursery is an outstanding nursery (Ofsted 2010). It provides a modern and exciting environment for children aged between two and five, including children whose parents are studying or working at Strode as well as members of the public.

Car Parking - some 521 parking places are available to Strode College.

Strode Theatre - this professional mixed-arts venue on the college campus has a diverse programme of Live Theatre, Film, Music and Visual Arts. We have a range of other performance and rehearsal spaces including our new dance studio. These provide exciting performance and exhibition opportunities for our students.
