We have just completed a new 16 classroom English and Modern Foreign Languages block costing nearly £3 million. This will provide sparkling new facilities and spaces for these subject areas and will be in use for teaching from June 2016. We are carrying out major refurbishment of the Gill Building to create a new Student Centre. This will provide further dedicated space for socialising and informal study together with a student information desk and access on the other floors to key services, including Careers, Directors of Faculty, Senior Tutors, Counsellors and ILT support. These building works mark the completion of a major programme of renewal and refurbishment of our campus over the last ten years or so, worth around £15 million.
We have extensive outdoor spaces for sport and exercise, including new sports pitches located in Ashstead Lane at the rear of the campus. The rugby and football pitch are built to full international dimensions and along with an adjoining practice area probably offer the best views of any facility in the country! Our campus is second-to-none in offering modern, attractive, stimulating spaces in which to learn and socialise.
In addition we have invested substantially in developing high quality IT, award winning online infrastructure and a high student-to-PC ratio which means that student learning is supported by the best that technology can offer. We have an extensive Wifi system in place which means that you can use your own devices across the campus.
