St Brendan's Sixth Form College was almost entirely rebuilt in 2009 to provide university-standard facilities to students within a relaxing and supportive environment.
We are fortunate to be located on one site, with very pleasant grounds, which are used and enjoyed by students throughout the year. These have been extensively landscaped to reflect our historic surroundings. As part of the capital investment, the College has ensured that its provision of technology is at the 'cutting edge'. Equipment and software provided is the same as that used by higher education institutions and industry. All areas of the College are accessible to wheelchair users. The focus on providing specialist facilities, dedicated to meeting the needs of post-16 students, makes St Brendan's an ideal and enjoyable place to learn and develop as a young adult.
All buildings have been designed to minimise the College's impact on the environment, utilising the earth's natural resources, such as sunlight and rainwater. They are designed to minimise the carbon emissions, whilst providing a great place to work and study.
All areas of the College are accessible for wheelchair users.
The College is a very safe site and we work hard to ensure that it remains so. In assisting with this, it is vital that no head coverings are worn that prevent easy identification. This means for example, that motor cyclists must remove helmets immediately after parking their bikes in the designated parking space.
The College actively works to discourage smoking. However, some members of the community are smokers and, in order to keep students safe, a small outdoor area near the entrance has been identified as the only area where students may smoke on site.
Examples of the facilities include:
