More students, more opportunities
We have far more students aged 16-19 than school sixth forms, which means more opportunities to enjoy learning and socialising with people of your own age.
There are plenty of enrichment and sports activities to take part in, as well as college events, groups and societies. There are also many places around college and near to college, where you can spend time with friends or on your own, unwinding, socialising, eating, listening to music or studying. Visit our news and social media section to find out more.
Friendly and welcoming atmosphere
We value all of our students as individuals and this creates a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. This is something regularly commented on by students and praised by Ofsted in their 2014 inspection report.
"Students appreciate the inclusive and welcoming atmosphere in lessons, where everyone feels equally valued..."
Higher Education students have their own facilities in our brand new Higher Education and Skills Centre where they can study, socialise and relax.
