Campus
The original Old Mill Lane A Block has now been demolished with classes being relocated to the B block or one of the other various college sites. The area is currently undergoing a complete transformation with the construction of a new multi million pound building to replace both A and B block. This is due for completion in June 2011, with the final stage being the demolition of B block to make way for a landscaped garden area. The subjects that will be taught in the new Old Mill Lane site will generally be for the vocational qualifications.
