The College is situated on a green site in South Croydon, providing an attractive and stimulating environment. Our buildings are light, airy and spacious, built in the modernist style and exude light and space.

We have high quality industry standard facilities which include our state-of-the-art Digital Media Suite, a broadcasting and professional photography studio and commercial on site Hair, Beauty and Spa Salons. The Health, Care and Early Years Department also boasts interactive learning spaces which contains a replicated hospital environment and a superb virtual nursery facility.

The Learning Resource Centre complete with specialist LLDD facilities complements our Student Services Lounge, which provides a one stop service to further enrich the student experience. This area includes a Common Room which offers a safe but independent space for recreation and networking, as well as a Careers Advice Centre, making it a truly inclusive experience.

The College has a competition standard sports hall and fitness gym. The 10 acre site also includes a well maintained football pitch, and outdoor relaxation areas.

We have continued to invest in our estate and 2015 saw the completion of a brand new Work Skills Academy catering for Apprenticeships and Traineeships. Another major area of refurbishment was in the Creative Media and Art and Design block which saw the introduction of purpose built large classroom spaces with new technology. We have also recently invested in first class teaching and learning classrooms all with interactive technology and state of the art wireless technology.

Investment in the latest technology ensures that all of our students and staff have the opportunity to improve their skills and complement industry.

The College continues to work towards achieving our goal of reducing our energy consumption and carbon footprint. The utilization of energy efficient boilers and the completed replacement window programme have significantly reduced our energy consumption.

The College will continue to invest in high quality facilities across all areas of the College including the refurbishment of more classrooms and communal spaces.

All of these exciting changes are as a result of student feedback which current and future students will benefit from.

The College’s facilities can be viewed on a 360 degree virtual tour.
