Who is Junior College for?

  • Art and Design
  • Business
  • GCSE English and Maths

A Practical Learning Experience

Students of the Junior College will work towards a UAL Level 2 Diploma in Art and Design and a NCFE Diploma in Business Skills. They will also gain essential GCSEs in English and Maths.
