Coronavirus (COVID-19) – college update

We are now taking bookings for courses next term. We will be providing courses using remote online learning and classroom-based learning that follows government safety rules. You can book courses and assessments online, including free online community courses in August and September.

We remain closed temporarily for public visits. Our pre-school is open from September during term time. Our rooms are not available for hire until further notice.

Pre-school childcare

We have pre-school facilities for children of ages 2 to 5 years. Rated 'Good' by Ofsted, activities are carefully planned to provide learning through play, education and care. The pre-school is a bright, warm environment with a fully-equipped outdoor play area where the developmental and social needs of children are met.

The pre-school opens from Monday to Friday, 9am to 3:30pm. You can book a place for your child or children whilst attending courses at the college. Contact us to check availability as pre-booking is essential.

You can visit the pre-school during term time and speak to our childcare supervisor, then complete a registration form and pay the £15 registration fee to register your child.
