By Sally Houchin, Art and Design Dept., 26 May 2017

Visitors to the newly landscaped garden area outside the Learning Support Dept. offices in 58 North Hill  will have noticed the striking ‘Crane’ bird feeder,created by A-Level Product Design student George Wilson,  that has now been cemented into place. 

Stained Glass Windows

By Adrian Frost, Assistant Principal, 2 November 2015

The recent Open Evenings gave us a great chance to show off the recently installed stained glass windows in the Performance Studio Building. These not only provide us with a distinctive welcome for visitors at the foot of the drive, but also offer  spectacularly lit access to an additional Psychology classroom.

Official Opening of The Syd Kent Pavilion

By Adrian Frost, Assistant Principal, 12 October 2015

Last Friday marked the official opening of our new student social and study spaces, though in truth students have been using both facilities for a few weeks now and we are very pleased with the response to our new facilities.

We hope that they weren't disturbed too much by the formal opening, but it was a good chance to recognise the outstanding contribution of outgoing College Governor Syd Kent, who has been a driving force behind the college since before it started nearly 30 years ago! The New 'Syd Kent' Pavilion is a fitting tribute to his hard work on everyone's behalf over the years.

New Student Study Space

By Adrian Frost, Assistant Principal, 29 September 2015

It's quite right that a lot of attention has been focussed upon the new Pavilion Building, but the more attentive among us will also have noticed a number of other study spaces popping up around the site over the past year or so. This one, for example, is tucked away on the top floor - with its distinctive angled windows being the only clue to its former life as office space for the Senior Tutor in Division 9.
