We aim to provide all the facilities required by our students and understand the importance of technology and specialised study areas.

Library and Study Centre

As sixth form students, you will have Study Periods when you can research and complete your assignments. The College Library and Study Centre are great places to help you develop these study skills. They offer a range of learning environments, so you can find a space that suits you – whether you want to work on your own or in a group.

The College Library and Study Centre have over 70 open access computers plus all the equipment you’d expect to find in a modern library – 6,000 textbooks, 40 magazines, 600 DVDs, 1,000 novels and over 500 e-resources. All of these resources have been selected to support sixth form courses, and all of them are fully searchable on the library database in college and at home.

But best of all, we have trained and friendly library staff to answer your enquiries.  Personal Tutors are also based in our study areas.  So you will always be able to find pastoral, IT and academic support when you need it.

Course facilities

For many subjects, specialist equipment is needed. We provide all the necessary materials and equipment to help you get the most out of your course. From video cameras to art materials, we keep supplies fully stocked and available for you as required.
