During the summer all three of our campuses have been preparing for the start of the new T Level qualifications. This September our new T Level students have enjoyed walking in to new specially designed and purpose built suites, classrooms and labs. These new facilities have enhanced our campuses with a modern look and are completed with new industry standard equipment.

Sees the Day is a local charity who offers day care services for adults with additional needs. The charity wanted to develop their garden so their users could complete an outside gardening project. They approached some of our Carpentry apprentices and asked if they could make them two raised planters for their disabled service users to enable them to be able to access the resources to be able to complete the project.
