New! £3.9M Future Skills & Technology Centre
Our brand new £3.9M Technology and Future Skills Centre is home to our Construction, Motor Vehicle and new Electrical courses. The Centre has been part-funded by our Local Enterprise Partnership, Enterprise M3, in recognition of the strategic importance of skills training and the strong demand from employers for skilled workers.

We Stretch And Challenge
We help each individual to go beyond their expectations by identifying talent and potential and setting targets that gently stretch and challenge. We invite students with this potential to join our High Achievers’ programme, which offers stimulating projects and additional opportunities – such as preparation and coaching for applications to Oxford and Cambridge and Russell Group universities. Leadership activities such as organising events, debating, peer mentoring and additional external visits.
We Celebrate Success
Each year we celebrate your outstanding achievements in the End of Year Celebrations and High Achievers Awards. We are extremely proud of everything that our students do. You are all lively and engaged individuals who get involved in many activities both inside, and outside, of College.
We Love Winners
From the launch of the Scrawl premiere, gaining onsite construction experience, building a sustainable greenhouse, winning Autosolo events, to winning Cordwainers Footwear Student of the Year Awards, students past and present excel.
We Provide Ongoing Support
We know when our students leave us they have exciting futures ahead of them but every now and then they still need our support, whether that is for references or more general guidance on how to break into the industry or enhance skills and knowledge. We welcome our former students back and will provide all the support they need for their ongoing success. Also sometimes it is just nice to pop back and say hi.
