We have exciting plans to build a modern, purpose-built campus delivering technical, professional and vocational skills, education and training in the centre of High Wycombe. We have agreed to acquire neighbouring sites in Oxford Road and Brook Street in High Wycombe town centre which are ideal for the new campus.
Since we announced our plans, Buckinghamshire Council has now reviewed the planning applications and approved unanimously a “resolution to grant planning permission” giving the College the green light to move forward.
The brand new campus will enable us to relocate the activities currently delivered at the Amersham and Flackwell Heath campuses to this new state of the art learning environment. Construction is yet to begin, but we estimate the project is likely to complete during 2025. In the meantime, our Amersham and Flackwell Health (Wycombe) campuses continue to operate as normal. When we do move, we will support staff, students and parents through the transition including travel planning which will be aided by the excellent public transport links the new campus will have nearby.
The College has been working with Buckinghamshire Council, Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and a number of other stakeholders following a review of the condition and use of its existing campuses in the south of the county at Amersham and Flackwell Heath. Demographic studies have shown that the demand for college places is growing quickly in High Wycombe and the new campus will be ideally placed to support this increased need for high quality technical, vocational and professional education.
Every year we have a thriving community of more than 5,000 students across our estate who deserve the very best facilities we can provide, in the locations where they need them, and which enable them to get the very best standards of teaching, learning and training.
