Buckinghamshire College Group was officially launched yesterday, 10th May, 2018 at a reception within the Palace of Westminster. The event took place in the State Rooms, Speaker’s House, House of Commons.
Ian Barham (Chair of Gvernors) and Principal and Chief Executive Karen Mitchell spoke to assembled guests about the merger between Aylesbury College and Amersham & Wycombe College and both thanked those in particular who had played a crucial role in the merger process.
MPs, college business associates/partners, other VIPs, plus a number of college staff and students were invited to attend the historic event.
“Level 3 Art & Design student Lillian Shons-Williams, who was photographer for the day said,” It feels so special to have been invited and it’s been a brilliant experience. All of the rooms are so interesting and there are loads of things to photograph to help capture the mood of the day.”
Speakers House is a grand building which overlooks the Thames and Westminster Bridge and is decorated in a gothic style with ornate chandeliers and portraits of former holders of the historic post of Speaker.
