Gloucester Campus 

Easy to access by foot, bike or car, the campus is not far from the popular Gloucester Quays outlet destination, where there are plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and a cinema for you to enjoy while spending time away from college.

On campus, you’ll find recently revamped mechanical and electronic engineering workshops brimming with industry-standard tools and machinery, as well as an impressive motor vehicle garage in which our budding mechanics hone their skills. The campus is also home to purpose-built construction workshops, a sports hall and a student gym.

Travel and Tourism students practise their skills in a flight room, while facilities available in our Visual Arts department include on-site TV, film and music recording studios, a dance studio, light and airy art studios and the Taylor Theatre. The next generation of talented hair and beauty students get the opportunity to work on real clients in our on-site hair salon and spa.


Forest of Dean Campus 

Situated in a stunning rural location in Cinderford, our Forest of Dean Campus is accessible by car and regular bus services from around the county.

Opened in 2018, our newest campus is designed to be environmentally friendly and packed with modern facilities. The campus includes purpose-built construction workshops kitted out with industry-standard tools and equipment, as well as art studios and creative workshops.

Thanks to its enviable countryside location, the Forest of Dean Campus is ideal for those who crave calm or adventure!
Our talented catering and hospitality students work in our on site, commercial restaurant, The View.

Other facilities include a large theatre, modern library and Graduations Hair and Beauty salon, in which our students can practise their trade on real clients.

Cheltenham Campus

The campus boasts big, bright spacious classrooms across three floors, with plenty of space for independent study, a lively hair and beauty salon, student-run Number One Restaurant and the fashion and textiles studio.

More than £3m has been invested in a new state-of-the-art facility, ADA: Advanced Digital Academy, which includes cyber, computing and engineering facilities, as part of our partnership in the West of England Institute of Technology (WEIoT). Plus, you’ll find cutting-edge construction workshops, an inspiring library, a creative zone and Student Services, where you can get all the advice and support you may need.
