Arts & Media Centre
The refurbished Godwin building now houses pottery, sculpture and fine art classes. Phase 2 sees the introduction of a performing arts theatre, rehearsal rooms and a TV & Media studio, all of which have been treated with sound insulation/acoustics. These are complemented by a dance studio, costume studio and other related rooms.
New facilities provide the College community with a variety of food choices throughout the day. Food can be enjoyed in a seated area or from a 'grab and go'-style shop. Modern furniture and colour schemes make these areas feel fresh and very welcoming.
Block 10 (J Block)
